Ontario

Getting the crops in

Final season of bounty

Autumn arrives in a deciduous county

Colours set to bloom

Forest greens taking on hues

Red, orange and yellow

Purple and white

Resting at your feet

Painting the sky

Scattered on high winds

Falling leaves

Apples to pick

Cycle

Early morning

Idle time

The climbing sun comes at last

Another day dawns in earnest

The summer months go by fast

Flash of fire, then back to dark

Long nights and pitch black skies

Time seems to stretch on in the absence of the light

The Calm

Sun extinguished, inner light shines forth

Keep the gloom at bay

Wind swept fields

Bracing for the rain

The black shapes

Blanketing the sky

Lightning strikes

Turn a blind eye

A memory saved

Of summer storms

No longer afraid
