The beauty of Autumn in the Skies again! I am speechless as I gaze upon such beauty in nature that I lay down my camera gear and just allow the beauty to mesmerize my eyes, thoughts and experience the lovely magnificence before me. It is no wonder that photographers travel to the ends of the earth to capture the beauty of creation and to bathe in its loveliness live and in person. Should you travel to the uttermost parts of the earth to behold it? Yes, yes a thousand times yes! But, my friends, do not despair if you are not able to travel far away, simply go outdoors and gaze upon it morning and evening where you are. It will mesmerize you too with its kaleidoscopic colored skies and earthtoned hues from sunrise to sunset.
Say it well then romantic poet…
“IN your arms was still delight,
Quiet as a street at night;
And thoughts of you, I do remember,
Were green leaves in a darkened chamber,
Were dark clouds in a moonless sky.
Love, in you, went passing by,
Penetrative, remote, and rare,
Like a bird in the wide air,
And, as the bird, it left no trace
In the heaven of your face.
In your stupidity I found
The sweet hush after a sweet sound.
All about you was the light
That dims the greying end of night;
Desire was the unrisen sun,
Joy the day not yet begun,
With tree whispering to tree,
Without wind, quietly.
Wisdom slept within your hair,
And Long-Suffering was there,
And, in the flowing of your dress,
And when you thought, it seemed to me,
Infinitely, and like a sea,
About the slight world you had known
Your vast unconsciousness was thrown.…”
Rupert Brooke, “The South Seas” Excerpt: Retrospect,
MATAIEA, January 1914.
