New York City autumn - Central Park 

—-

Under elm trees

laden with gold

you said

you 

would wait for 

me.

Under the branches

clinging to the last

of summer’s wishes

you sat.

And in the distance

I saw winter

waiting,

whispering

on the barest

of breezes

until all I

could hear

were promises

of snow.

This was taken two autumns past in Central Park with the Sony A55.

New York Autumn - Central Park

—-

Autumn is the kiss that summer lingers a little longer for;

a warm whisper caressing winter’s ear.

And as the trees arch their arms towards the earth,

heavy with summer’s promises,

winter’s grey sky looks on

in envy.

I have been going through some of my older autumn photos. Autumn is intensely vivid in New York City. Summer seems to consistently overextend itself each year and then almost overnight there is a distinct and delicious chill in the air and the trees adorn themselves in the most beautiful colors.

This was taken two autumns ago in Central Park with the Sony A55. It’s incredible how photography can spark the memory and senses. I look at this photograph and I can smell the faint scent of burning firewood in the air and feel the crunch of the leaves underfoot.

Autumn, I look forward to falling in love with you again this year.

Autumn light. Central Park, New York City

It’s in the way the sunlight streams through the last vestiges of autumn: as golden as the leaves that hold onto their branches.

It’s in the way the earth bares itself under this fanfare: as vulnerable as new lover’s heartbeats buried under layers of clothing.

Winter’s prelude starts slowly: a distant refrain that works its way through the earth chilled in anticipation.

We slow-dance on this mortal coil to the adagio of life twisting and turning with the whims of the winds that scatter our spirit to the ends of the earth.

It’s all we can do.

Autumn leaves under elm trees. Central Park, New York City

Under a canopy of elm trees, nothing is quite as beautiful as the warmth that emanates from fallen autumn leaves. 

Scattered like fiery embers, they are strewn about only suspended in motion for a short time before the wind stirs them from their molten slumber.  

If winter had but one dream, it would be of this.
