Running from the Law: Leaves of Autumn

Leaves of Autumn

Leaves of autumn flutter down, 
red and yellow, orange and brown. 
Cool crisp winds begin to blow
Colored leaves fall fast and slow.
In the air they swirl around 
landing softly on the ground. 
How silently they tumble down
And come to rest upon the ground.
To lay a carpet, rich and rare,
Beneath the trees without a care.
Content to sleep, their work well done,
Colors gleaming in the sun.
At other times, they wildly fly
Until they nearly reach the sky.
Twisting, turning through the air
Till all the trees stand stark and bare.
Exhausted, they drop to earth below
To wait, like children, for the snow.
In the breeze they swirl around 
landing softly on the ground. 
Whirling, twirling all around,
red and yellow, orange and brown.

  5. That giant leaf '3' is amazing! Pictures like these make my heart ache for real autumns. The only slight consolation is knowing how many spiders are hiding in those leaves ;) Gorgeous pictures, Sara!

  10. That 3! How did you manage to get photos before it all got thrown in the air? Love Mim with her mini wheelbarrow and Mac going wild with the leaves. Such a fun childhood classic shoot :)

  11. So freaking adorable.
    Also, I'm insanely jealous of all your pretty leaves. Palm trees don't have near the spectrum of beautiful color this time of year.
