A red leaf.
I forgot everything else I saw yesterday morning. The first sunflower in bloom. The wispy pink and white morning glories. The white African daisy with its dark purple center.
The red leaf. Fall in summer.
"Hey!" said the sunlight.
Red leaf in bright light.
Red leaf in some light.
Red life in shade.
"Hey!" said the sunlight.
When I previewed the photos on the computer I saw it then.
Had I looked away? Had I blinked?
A shiny black bug on the red leaf.
Where did it come from?
An overview of a terrain of some sort?
It's Mosaic Monday, so I thought I'd try something different today. Good cheer, Everyone!
Thanks, Linda. :-)Delete
Loveky mosaic the bugs know how to stay quiet but you still saw itReplyDelete
Stay safe. I am #18 on the linky
Thanks, Gillena. I think either a spider dropped from overhead or a fly that parked itself while I blinked. I wonder if the bug was going to eat the leaf. I never thought of that.Delete
Yeah, this the wrong time of year for a red leaf. Weird.ReplyDelete
It's from an ornamental pear tree. It also blooms out of its normal season.Delete
...we will need to wait for red here for a while, but the dry weather is creating many brown ones.ReplyDelete
We've got a lot of brown ones wandering the yard, too.Delete
We here in Idaho have been having sunny day with nice breezeReplyDelete
Sounds good, Dora. :-)Delete
A red leaf poem. An premature death?ReplyDelete
You got me shivering, Colleen.Delete
It's the middle of July . . . yep, Summer's nearly done. :(ReplyDelete
Is it my imagination, did it go by more quickly than usual?Delete
It feels like it did.Delete
An interesting mosaic and thoughts on a red leaf. It’s good for the red leaf to be photographed by you before crumbling down to earth. Stay safe and well.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Yoko, for the sweet words. Right back at you. :-)Delete
Such interesting patterns. I like this new way of seeing something familiar.ReplyDelete
Cool, Penelope! I appreciate you saying that.Delete
Love your poetry. This made my afternoon.ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing.
Thank you, EricaSta! :-)Delete
Su-sieeemac - your imagination and flights have fancy always impress me, someone who tends to be way too linear! I think we have all had the experience of catching something in a photo that we don't notice until later - our eyes "see", but then they don't! I suppose that could be a metaphor for many things. Thanks for linking up, and enjoy the rest of your week!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Angie. Now that I don't have to do too much heavy lifting, I've given my imagination almost carte blanche. I'm not ready, which I hope I'll be sooner than later, to give it the full reins. Gulp.Delete
Hello, Pretty poem and lovely images of the leaf. It is always great to notice all the beauty around us, even in a single leaf! Enjoy your day and the rest of the week!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Eileen! :-)Delete
All of the leaves are green hereReplyDelete
The more beautiful the red leaves look after 'transformed' into a mosaic look ..., If the picture is enlarged then printed as a painting in the living room how beautiful ...ReplyDelete
Greetings from Indonesia.
Thank you, Himawan! Maybe!Delete
Some times I see a tree with changing leaves and I'm like, whoa! It's July...everything else in the world has gone bonkers it is sure to affect nature as well.ReplyDelete
Dawn aka Spatulas On Parade
I'm wondering if the cycle for this tree has sped up because of the change in weather and climate around here. We have bone dry years now, even when we've had a decent rainy season.Delete
I’ve seen some red leaves already and am not ready yet.ReplyDelete
I used to think that the Summer Solstice marked the beginning of Summer. Now, I see it as the middle. With the coastal fog hanging on the horizon, it almost feels like Fall.Delete
What pretty photos that make beautiful mosaics! I picked up a leaf yesterday and photographed it today. Great minds....and all that! heehee! Enjoy your week!ReplyDelete
You said it, Diane! We are of great minds. :-)Delete
