Shadows Of Fall



Fall is crying
I look back
Your but a memory
Buried beneath
The turning leaves

Once when we
Had joined the dance
Life
Like ocean's hidden depths
Began to swell

You passed
&
Shadows grew
Now I shade my eyes
Watch them mingle
Along this shore

Struck, looking in
Our grown son's eyes..
Was only you
I saw before..
But it's me too

In between
The words
I heard a hesitation-
Even introspection
Yes, I could see
That you are me
Yet you are us..
Still
It will always be
Just you-

Fall is crying
And we'll remain
More than just a memory
Buried beneath
These turning leaves

Poignant but assuring. Love the poem so much. Like one day at a time. The photos are awesome. Love to see you my friend and your beautiful place.

PS.The red lighthouse and boat were taken at the port at Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
All of my vacation pictures were stored and left in the computer of my in-laws in CA. (my nephew did it). A thousand of it.
I only saved few pics in my USB due to limited memory.
It was also timely and good because I just find out that the computer at home has no more spaced for big files and I was able to open a new Flicker pro account where my nephew was able to send most of the cruise pics. God is good.

The Lord shower you with His Blessings and cover you now with His love and keep you warm and safe always.

XOXO
Regina,Philippines

The back light in the first photo makes it look like a beautiful curtain! Lovely!

Deep emotion to the things leaving.

It may be the reason that Fall is the most artistic.

It is beautiful fate to leave as well as being born.

lovely words - the photo at top was perfect for the poem and the photo at bottom was perfect for the end

Let's be perfectly clear- the war on free speech is spiritual!
