  1. I love this photo and the poem. Tau-ku is an interesting form of poetry. Thanks for including the link about it too.

  2. I’m glad you provided the link because I had no idea what Tau-ku was. More knowledge gained. Loved your words though, and the picture.

  5. Hi Joe, I agree, Tau-Ku is an interesting form of poetry. The 2 syllables for the second line are a nice challenge. 😉

    Hi Val, There are so many forms of poetry; I love learning about and trying new ones. Tau-Ku is a lot of fun. Glad you liked this post!

  8. It’s getting to be that time of year and you captured the change of season beautifully, Geraldine.

  9. Hi Teri, Thanks for the reply. I’m glad you’re enjoying my novel. 🙂

    Hi Brian, What a beautiful way of expressing your personal transition to fall Brian, loved that. I think we are more tied to the seasons and the weather than it sometimes appears. I think you feel that way too. 😉

    Hi Kim, Thanks so much.

    Happy Week, G

  10. This photo is amazing! The tau-ku complements it perfectly.

  11. Perfect for fall! I can feel it coming 🙂

  12. Beautiful words to go with the beautiful photo. I love to take walks after a good rain, when things (leaves, trees and pine) smell so good and fresh. We were up at our mountain property yesterday right after it got a very big, heavy rain with hail, wind, all of it. Then it stopped, quieted down, and was so still, but smelled so good. So, we took our long walk down the road with our dog, Maggie and the mountains just over the ‘Mummy’ range, its called smelled so good and really did look like the ‘purple mountains, majesty’ just like the American anthem words. And just a little over a year ago those parts on the mountain range suffered a terrible wildfire and burnt up large sections of our mountains there. We never take for granted what we see and know of God’s beauty out there to enjoy.
