...of the movement of water...

the underlying attraction
 of the movement of water and sand is biological.
if we look more deeply
we can see it
 as the basis of an abstract idea
linking ourselves
 with the limitless mechanics
of the universe.
-   Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe

my fountain is done flowing.
bit by bit.
the yard of summer.
good job summer.
your hand was well played.
speaking of playing...
let's join the shadow chasers.
i will see you in the shadows.
just BE.

Nice--it's like the whole season in one shot.

Beautiful shadow shot as always, Robin! And the perfect words! And bit by bit things are settling down for the long winter nap here in Seattle as well. Hopefully there will always be shadows to play with!
Enjoy your weekend!

A very perfect prose with that clean & neat shot is = to FROSTY soon.

Love the way you captured your photos. They are very original and alive.

Happy SS & have a nice w/end.

Excellent shadw shot - and I love the photos in your previous post!

The summer sleeps indeed now. The water may freeze in the winter, so we must consider that as we remove (for now) the things of the warmer season. Happily, shadows are not constrained by season - snow is a fine canvas for shadowy art...

Great shadow shot and verse as always.

The lovely autumn leaf in this feature sits alone but beautiful in its own right.

Pagan Sphinx said...

Nice shot. The leaf is very close to the color of the pots.

A soft, sighing atmosphere in this beautiful shot! The curl of dry leaf is like a final embrace! Beautiful!

Oh, I'm gonna miss it so...or is it that we need a break from our labors of the summer...don't know why I dread the winter so, guess because it's so financially draining for me and I don't have a wood burning stove...YET!!!

But I had my cable TV taken out the other day, so we'll see how productive I can be this winter in the silence of the drone of my PC...and the wind!

Time to scale back, I'm feeling the urge, or is it the pinch in these troubles times. I can't stand tripping across the news anywhere, lies and buffoonery abound!

But I get a little respite with a visit to my friends...and drink another cup of HOT happy lil' friend and say 'HEY' to Ma!
