Float down, like autumn leaves…..

“….Do you ever wonder if the stars shine out for you?
Float down
Like autumn leaves
And hush now
Close your eyes before the sleep
And you’re miles away
And yesterday you were here with me…”

(Thanks Ed Sheeran)

From where i’m sat watching and around my own (very little) world, this autumn seems to be a time of reflections and complicated untangling. People, places, lives; startings, endings or hovering somewhere in-betweens. Little people coming into the world and other people leaving their lives on this earth. Situations waiting, like so many shy actors in the wings for the right time to step out onto the stage…
.
At times brilliant flashes of colour while the next second it’s all about finishing, yellow leaves and seed-heads.
.
Some things seen from a distance, like this yellow leaf glimpsed from down the path. Other things only seen afterwards, like the green leaf…only spotted when home and actually looked at the image. Coal-black seed heads waiting until just the right time to leave their moorings and fall to the ground; interrupt that and the next stage won’t happen.

In other news i have discovered the joys of cleaning. Not just ordinary cleaning, but that which falls onto a person so they are moved to drop to their knees and scrub whole rooms. Ordinarily i would worry and take myself off to be checked out…but given the overdue cleaning that this house has suffered from, i’ve got a while to go before there is any measurable impact to a casual observer!
