(This photo was taken just before the First Snowfall of the Year)
I decided yesterday,
I needed to go into the heart of the farm,
into the heart of the Earth;
where places of wonder exist,
places where I could forget politics
I went off and on throughout the whole day
Looking at the crisped bushes, trees, and the fallen leaves
Gathering the heart of the Earth into my heart
Enjoying the peace
Before the predicted
High winds of Fall
(I only saw a few of these)
Are due in here of Friday
Bringing with it several days of the second snowfall of the season.
The light last night was lovely.
My favorite light—looking at the world through the color Rose.
From my world to your heart,
Yes, to the heart of the earth, we forget the mechanisms of mankind…somehow it will all work out for the best.
What is the first picture of?
A Wasp! 🙂
OH! YEAH! Ok. I couldn’t focus.
You have lots if beezes!
🙂 We do!

I think you were wise. Tennyson wrote a poem called The Brook, and one of the repeated lines is “For men may come and men may go, but I go on for ever”. What was true of the Brook is doubly true of the Land. Long after the bickering politicians are gone and we are all dust, there will still be the Land.
And the peace the land brings 🙂
“The world is too much with us, late and soon.
Getting and spending we lay waste our powers,
Little we see in nature that is ours.”
William Wordsworth 1802
So true—the world is too much with us…sigh. Thank you, Katie!
Snow say it isn’t so! Stay safe and warm! I hope the corn is all done…I need to go back and read your previous post…I hope you are almost done:)
We are done. Finally! Snow coming in tomorrow.
That light sure is lovely .. the paper wasps here, are busy making their summer homes 🙂
