happy november

Hello and happy November.   Todays image was just taken this past Saturday 10/30/2021.   To me it is a quintessential Autumn shot with color, texture and the theme of breaking down - the end of life.  Enjoy.    

Autumn

If you have followed this blog for a long time you know that I focus more on abstracts than nature shots when posting different photographs.    That is because nature really only interests me about 5 months out of the year.   Primarily October through February.      The spring and summer months I can take it or leave it.   I don’t find nature that inspiring March through September, photographically speaking.    I’m not against it – as I have seen some absolutely stunning photographs from Spring and Summertime – it just isn’t my “thing”.     So since we are into the month of October I’ve decided to post only nature shots this month.   Enjoy.   And for those that love the abstracts – they will be back again.   Oh, and just to clarify; these are not new photos. They are from years past. 

The Carnival Is Over

carnival is over

Outside the storm clouds gathering
Moved silently along the dusty boulevard
Where flowers turning crane their fragile necks
So they can in turn reach up and kiss the sky

They’re driven by a strange desire
Unseen by the human eye
Someone’s calling

I remember when you held my hand
In the park we would play
When the circus came to town
Look over here

Outside the circus gathering
Moved silently along the rain swept boulevard
The procession moved on, the shouting is over
The fabulous freaks are leaving town

They’re driven by a strange desire
Unseen by the human eye
Someone’s calling

The carnival is over

We sat and watched
As the moon rose
For the very first time
