Her Calico Dress


Summer came to play for just one day--
her blue eyes flashing,
flaxen hair lifted in the breeze,
as she skipped the trail where Autumn patiently waits.
Then, ran off to another place,
white petticoats flashing behind her.
Her calico dress is laid out across my field.

Nina--I would love to leave a comment, but I am speechless. Speechless at the sheer beauty you have captured, both in image and word.

Wonderful series of photos...the light and leaves and... that katydid. I never noticed before now 'origami-like' they are!

I like the metaphor of the calico dress. Very fitting.

Nina, so beautiful! I feel like I went on the walk with you. Thank you for sharing your beautiful work. The shot of the golden leaves with the dark background is my favorite... I think!
