Another Spot of Luminous

“First Blaze of Indian Summer,”  available in my  Autumn Glory gallery


Autumn wisps in hand in hand with Indian Summer breezes today, sketching in a cardinal red leaf on my dogwood, casting leavetaking to wing — like birds dancing and chirping, soaring and dipping across battalions of white-sail, tall ship clouds,  to melody only they hear.

Yet, as I wait my turning out of the cul de sac, watching those papery leaves skitter in trails behind each passing car, their song catches my heart up like a whirl through that once a year dance round.

Then, in all the still- green foliage my eyes search… and find… the one harbinger of fall tree, luminously aflame.

O Lord, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth!
    Your glory is higher than the heavens.

~ Psalm 8, NLT

What glow of luminous Majesty do you see in your little corner today?

    Love your “First Blaze of Indian Summer.” Bright, brilliant leaves of the tree! Loved how you set that in a scene of black and white! So striking. Love the boy and girl in the scene, fishing. Reminds me of a part out of Tom Sawyer. So charming. Such a nice feeling of Fall. Love the sky and cloud reflections in the water. Love all the detail in the picture, of foliage, and little houses in the distance. You have such a gift, Pam, with your art work. Such a gift, to all of us who have the pleasure to behold it. Your pictures enables me to feel immersed in Fall! Thank you for that! Happy Fall!

    • Thanks, Eileen! I came across this vintage black and white photo and loved it for all the reasons you mentioned (except I added the little houses)! It said something like Tom Sawyer to me too! Those cloud reflections, the boy and girl, the dog…And from the minute I saw it, I imagined it with just that one spot of autumn glory in the tree… So glad this sings fall into you today, too! It is amazing too how on really dark and misty fall days that are similar to black and white, the tree color seems even more vibrant…

  2. The Ga. mountains are ablaze in the fall, waiting for the cool breezes.

    Ah Pam . . . we thought we had had a tinge of autumn briskness, and it has evaporated into muggy St. Louis summer, with more on the way next week. No changing colors either–not cool enough. So I will bask in the beauty you are seeing from my vicarious post at the computer. And thank you for asking: Feeling better today (especially when reading your uplifting posts).

    • Actually, we’ve had a lot of 80 degree weather in the last few weeks, and just now getting some cooler days. Thankfully, not much mugginess this year here. May it turn refreshing and colorburst soon where you are, Lynn! Glad to hear you are feeling better! Blessings to your weekend – and to looking for the luminous around you! 🙂

  4. The weather has been warm here, so the color is coming on slowly. But the air. Oh my. It has the tinge to it, the smell of woodsmoke in the early morning, Amish neighbors starting theirs…I love the cool hint of earthy smell, and a crisp kind of clarity to the air. Sigh. Autumn is so lovely. ❤

    We’re in Indian Summer still but later in the week the temps will fall. Love the brightly colored tree in the picture. We had a dogwood in our front yard growing up and I always loved it. Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm! xo Kathleen|Our Hopeful Home
