Dark Chestnut

Thou shaking thy dark shadows down,
Like leaves before the first leaves fall,
Pourest upon the head of night
Her loveliest loveliness of all —
Dark leaves that tremble
When soft airs unto softer call.
O, darker, softer fall her thoughts
Upon the cold fields of my mind,
Weaving a quiet music there
Like leaf-shapes trembling in least wind:
Dark thoughts that linger
When the light’s gone and the night’s blind.
I see her there beneath your boughs.
Dark chestnut, though you see her not;
Her white face and white hands are clear
As the moon in your stretched arms caught;
But stranger, clearer,
The living shadows of her thought.

Here come the chestnuts .. and also the first real autumn chill. Today the landscape looks almost as good as if all this coolness soften the fruit, the air, the colors and objects. Today it’s cold but the sun is shining and that’s enough to make this day magical. The leaves on the lawn seem golden and all around is a real magic .. the magic of Autumn..

AUTUMN FRUIT

I love these atmospheres and even more the macro effect of my iphone.  It ‘s amazing what a phone can do ! The warmth and color of autumn fruit, the sour taste of apples and pears speaks to me of this wonderful season..
