Seed Fall

20131104-231721.jpg
Winged seeds ripen in the growing damp, their flesh illuminated by the failing sun.
Before the week is done they will take flight, swarming into lights last gasp.
Spinning moth like into the dying years flame.
A golden flutter, trusting the turning earth.
Hoping to rise from winters ashes.

About greenmackenzie

Hi, I'm Seonaid, and I share my home with my husband, my son and a collection of cats and dogs. I am forever snapping shots of things which catch my eye. I love art which is here now and gone tomorrow...like food and nature...but also have a passion for vintage and the ancient past! Nature is my favourite muse, with her wild ever shifting seasons. I have been using and teaching mindfulness and relaxation for over 12 years, and have yet to become any sort of expert :-) I'm a Psychotherapist, and run the Maggies Highlands Cancer Centre, in Inverness, Scotland.
