Autumn Reverie

The woods no longer vibrate with the songs of insects and birds.

Only the rustling of the wind through the dry leaves is heard.

Although the year round residents visit the feeders, it is in comparison a lonely quiet.

The young hummingbirds are gone, but I tend the feeders for any possible stragglers.

Plants that never wilt are seemingly bowed in prayer for rain.

While others are languishing, the red lycoris is fresh due to its underground reserve.

Every cloud teases our heart’s hope of the resurrecting power held within.

    Cindy, Racquel, Philip,
    Thanks for your wonderful comments.
    We are lucky. A nice slow rain began yesterday and still raining off and on today.
    I’m eager to plant some things I have been accumulating. Now the ground will be soft and easy to dig.

  2. With luck, the rain will fall soon, to renew the plants.
    The red lycoris is striking against the green and brown backdrop.

    I love those red spider lillies coming out of the leaves. What a vibrant shade of color amongst all that green & brown.

    I like the quiet these days and the coolness. Have a nice weekend, I’m off the VA to see the colors and my son.

  8. I know what you mean. I had one little hummer stop by late this evening.
