:: Autumn Colors ::


While boss prefers Spring, for the Sakuras,

I personally prefer Autumn, for the Momijis.

"More reflective," I tell him.

Spring embodies growth and energy and youth;

All is sprouting, thriving.

Autumn, on the other hand, embodies

Maturing, shedding and age.

Maybe I am getting old.


Look at those colours!

The last beauty of nature.

Before it fades away, completely.


Keat's "To Autumn", 1819

Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness,
Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;
Conspiring with him how to load and bless
With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run;
To bend with apples the moss’d cottage-trees,
And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;
To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells
With a sweet kernel; to set budding more,
And still more, later flowers for the bees,
Until they think warm days will never cease,
For Summer has o’er-brimm’d their clammy cells.

Hi ya,

i took the liberty of adding you to my friends list because i like your writing. Is that okay with you? :)


cool bananas! thanks! :)

rumination thru reflection bodes well for the cognitive area, allowing us to have a healthier mind and thus and not fade out that fast like the autumn leaves.

i oat not be this corny but iruffcookiedough's comment was so wheaty i can barley stand it! did she really mean thinking keeps us from getting Alzheimer's? like what was that? bodes well for the cognitive area? muahahaha.

The beauty comes back yearly. It is gone so that a different beauty can take its place.

Looking at your pics reminded me I need to push my ass to get them uploaded as well.

Nice pics you have!

yeah please do so.
it is a chore, and though a little more troublesome than facebook, posting pictures on LJ gives a sense of privacy, and scrapbook feel, doesn't it?

One way of looking at it...

It is the young that needs to see the fallen and decayed, having little sense of that world, while the older ones gain hope from the potential of growing greens.
