Autumn Leaves

I worked on some watercolor leaf pins, as I keep getting compliments on the one that I wear.  I have taken them to the Carriage House Gallery at the Eccles Community Art Center.

Night View

Below the city
Lights sparkle like bight jewels
A home on a hill.


City lights - jewels
Topaz, ruby, and diamond
Scattered before me.

In preparation for October

I have added my witches and the witch is in sign to my door.  I love my mother's pocket witches and isn't the pumpkin painting by Kris Wilson fun!
On October 1st I will pull out my fun T-shirts and vests with their Halloween themes.


Nature Expressions
Its unexpected beauty
Inspires writing.

First Day of Autumn 2010

Last day of summer
A brilliant double rainbow
Spans the canyon sky.

The path is littered
with green, yellow, orange, red ....
Autumn equinox.

An orange sun ball
Sets behind dark mountains
Paints the evening sky
In shades of blazing color
Orange, coral, lavender.

This morning:
A pale mourning sky,
A western golden full moon
Awaits the sunrise.

Evening Drive

This evening, Mollie and I took a drive around Pineview Dam, in Ogden Valley just a few miles east of Ogden Canyon.  We viewed trees splashed in autumn colors, yellow, orange, red, hills burnished in golden grass, as well as stacks of golden hay.  We witnessed a heron fly up from the South Fork river, a hawk flying scouting for dinner over a field, and a horned owl landing on a wooden power pole.  And then the colors of sunset.  I hope you evening was just as lovely ....

We also stopped at the market for tomorrow's milk for breakfast.

Simple Pleasures

Warm from a lavender scented bath.   Mollies settled, curled by the side of my bed.  Fresh, sun dried sheets.  And a new book by a favorite author.

Journal entry from last September

September Sunsets
Skies of yellow, orange, red
Trees dark silhouettes.

Autumn Leaf

A watercolor leaf pin and a Haiku.

A lone maple leaf
painted in autumn colors
dances on a breeze.

Evening Song

A warm summer night
through an open window - song
symphonic insects.
