A Moment in Nature.

I looked out of the window

I saw this magnificent site,

The green trees had turned red.

The beauty was astounding,

I had never seen this before,

Not this wondrous image,

Which I captured in my heart.

I looked back at the site

The trees were green once more,

But I had captured the image,

An image of that moment,

That moment in Nature.

      you looked out of your window & saw Placido Domingo in the garden? Result! Hope you invited him for tea!

      Seriously magnificent image to wake up to. Well presented too.


      • Goldfinch60


        Yes he was out there singing to me, that is what woke me up, I think that he had started taking lessons from Orchi!

        Thank you, it was a super sight but only lasted for a couple of minutes, I was lucky to be able to photograph the image.

          If you have had a laugh that is great, laughter is a great medicine.

          It was a wondrous sight.

          I had a moment of, something i had never seen before, in my bathroom yesterday. You'll be pleased to learn i didn't rush for my camera.
