Time markers



autumn leaves
have a way of falling gently
a beautiful descent 

each moment marked
by wisdom, regret and love
life's cornerstones

blissful silence
time stood still, its slow descent
grace our homeland

still?

silence béat
nous regardons la descente gracieuse
des feuilles d'automne

    1. Silent magic, even playing in heaps of new leaves can be memorable for kids.

  3. Ninot Ma'am,
    Such a beautiful picture of life and love in a leisurely pace, swaying in the wind. With all the goodness, life still goes on. But for those aware there is a special feel! Great take Ma'am!
