Glimpses of October From My Windows ~ Atmosphere and Light

Glimpses of October from my windows
misty morning skies wearing layers of shadowy waves 
melt between perfectly bright beautiful days of light 
and those of rain showers falling as trees unfasten colorful leaves
each floating and uniquely flying to a destiny akin to a runaway kite.

A one thousand foot wide mass of storm
moves towards this land with a voice of wind power
too strong to harness for energy, oh most frightening form.
October retreats trembling along with inhabitants along the coast and cone. 

For a moment . . .  a calm look back over days of magical autumnal brilliance.

May all life within the reach of hurricane Sandy be safe. 

Post hurricane Sandy . . .

Frightening winds did cause concern but all here at Flower Hill Farm still stands firmly and amazingly we did not lose power.
My thoughts are for all those have suffered loss due to this monstrous storm.

Hello Carol:
The landscape, the colours, the beauty are almost unbelievable. As far as the eye can see Nature, at her most wonderful clothed in autumn attire, stretches into the far distance. What absolute joy it must be to look upon this incredible scene at this time of year as, we are certain, is the case in other seasons.

We are so fearful of Hurricane Sandy and all who are in its path. We do so hope that Flower Hill Farm will be spared the worst of this impending storm.

Gorgeous, inspirational scenery! I am thinking of you and your beautiful gardens. I hope all is well and Sandy leaves you unharmed.

Carol said...

Thank you so much for your kind words of support and concern. We still have power at 7pm . . . I feel so bad for those on the coast! The wind is truly sounding like a monster trying to break in . . . what must it sound like on Cape May!!! The images of this storm are frightening.

Maria said...

Very serene and pleasing colours of these landscapes.

Lona said...

What glorious views Carol. I am glad to hear that Sandy did not cause any damage to your farm. Stay safe.

Gail said...

Carol, It must be a joy to look at those views every day. I am glad that you are safe and that your lovely garden wasn't blown about.

Gillian Olson said...

Glad all is well with you, what a frightening experience that must have been.

Lovely! My favorites were the opening and closing pair with the subtle grays and golds. You capture this change in season so well.
