... glorious ...




As drops that dream and gleam
and falling catch the sun,
Evanescent mirrors
every ... one.

~Ezra Pound



We comprehend
Flowering and fading simultaneously.
And somewhere lions still roam,
Magnificent and all unaware
Of any weakness.

~Rainer Maria Rilke



Life demands for its fulfillment and completion
a balance of joy and sorrow.

~Carl Jung



I sing the endless finales of things,
I say Nature continues, glory continues,
I praise with electric voice,
For I do not see one imperfection in the universe.
O setting sun! though the time has come,
I still warble under you, if none else does,
unmitigated adoration.

~Walt Whitman

  5. Funny, often painfully so, how life continues to make us keep in balance. Such a great collection of those who have observed and written so beautifully about it here. Nice to come back again....EFH

  6. Glorious indeed. Just something about fall and her colors, along with the words from beautiful poems, that take the breath away.

    Ahhh...

  10. Simply divine, am soaking in the words and the magnificence of the colors. I am trying to remind myself that we've had more sunshine than usual in October and so perhaps "winter" will feel a bit shorter? Ha ha, its worth a try :)

  14. Framed to perfection, both in colour and weight.
    Know what? I am itching to insert two words in Ezra's last line: [each and ] every ...one. He probablythought it too corny to keep the scanning going.
    Have a happy Halloween tomorrow evening.
