The last Autumn leaf on the still water.

a clear reflection,
on still waters
contended existence
nothing else did matter

the wind blew away
the last autumn leaf
it rippled the reflection
and it was gone
now nothing does matter

poem by Srividya
(24 Sept 2006)

The leaves, hurled by vehement winds into the pond beneath the firewall (see previous image), were gently drifting, the blazing colours quickly tempered by the water... ebbing glory.View On proper Black
My heart filled with a sudden sadness, in Nature beauty is so ephemeral, I saw however that in everything there is beauty...
As you can see, I am a 'photography purist'? I do not mess with my images, I spent too many years 'getting it right'? Plus I feel Nature is doing a damn good job already...
Have a beautiful day and thanx for your comments, M, (*_*)
