“Be secret and exult.

Because of all things know

That is most difficult.” William Butler Yeats

Haikus:

Vultures in the sky.

Cloudless day for flying low.

Black against the blue.

A monarch flew by.

Why is it here in the cold?

Please find your way homeward soon.

Leigh M. 11/25/2018

It is hard to believe it has been two months since the monarchs emerged.

Transformation

“Autumn wins you best by this: its mute

Appeal to sympathy for its decay.” ~ Robert Browning ~

“The changing year’s progressive plan

Proclaims mortality to man.” ~ Horace ~

A lot of changes in autumn.  Most of the dragonflies and hummingbirds have left.  Changes for me too.  I’m sure the caterpillars are not afraid when they transform into moths and butterflies.  I can’t say the same for me.

Probably my last dragonfly picture for this year. Sad.

“The past is a bucket of ashes; so live not in your yesterdays, nor just for tomorrow, but in the here and now.  Keep moving and forget the post-mortems.”  ~ Carl Sandburg ~

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”  ~George Santayana ~
