The first leaf fell today,
	lacking even grace of color,
to lie quiescent on the sidewalk
	‘til wind-blown travel claimed it.
Soon millions more will throw themselves
	to willing death,
flaming brightly before reduced to
	crackling beneath feet in futile protest.

Days grow shorter, nights stretch longer,
	nights where passion once flamed brightly,
now passing also into death,
	unwilling on my part,
	kamikaze-like on yours.

The fire that now burns
	devours all the love
	and leaves not even embers
	that soft breath could coax back to life.

Autumn's harbingers
Lie dying before my eyes
Love once green now dead

Most of Philadelphia’s doors reflect the city’s stately history, a city that was once the temporary capital of the United States and a center for America’s revolutionaries.  Perhaps these doors reflect a bit of that revolutionary spirit as well as the eclectic diversity of the city.

Our revolutionary doorman for Thursday Doors is Norm, way up in Montreal.  Jeudi portes est très amusant, eh?  And hey, it’s almost hockey season again.  That gets my en-door-phins going!

Drops on ornamental kale

The town of Fougerolles, France lies in a place central to many places we visited during my last trip.  When we drove through, we passed  a walled cemetery that always caught our attention, but we were normally either on the way to or coming back from somewhere else.  Finally at the end of a long day, we stopped and, despite the heat and our tiredness, wandered through a cemetery unlike many in the US.  It was worth the stop, but it did make the cool drinks we had when we got make even better.  🙂  If these shots were in black and white or it was night…well, can anyone say “Dark Shadows?”

I’ll be working most of the day, so I won’t be able to read and comment on posts much until tomorrow…which is our 33rd  anniversary, so I might not be around much either.  We’re planning a bike ride.

I completely forgot that the Weekly Photo Challenge is taking a vacation this week.  (Who said that was okay?)  I hope this works instead.  🙂
