Low-lying woodland near Cache la Poudre River, Fort Collins, Colorado
my little green lawn
dreams about the pampas grass
I dream of the stars*

even woodland water pools
are filled with sacred riddles

  1. That is little green…but better than nothing!

  2. I see the reflections of the trees in the water as well as the shadow .. the little green sprigs of grass are like kids playing near a puddle.
    Dead leaves scattered about , yet the insistence of life with greenery stomping it’s tiny feet.
    Joy : )

  3. Beautiful thoughts and image.

  4. Lovely shadow shot as always and the reflections on the water are so clear! Perfect picture of Autumn!! Have a great weekend!!

  15. Indeed. I search for riddles and answers every time I come upon a pool of water. We have several around here and I love skirting the edges looking into the depths to see what lives in them. Love the word sacred, too. Nice.

  16. Is life the sacred riddle?
    Will we find it among the stars?
