A photograph I took a couple of weekends ago. I love the autumn colours and the last of the fruit of the season. There’s something so precious about this and it gives hope for another spring.

The words of the poem are mine:

the pyramids still stand
so why shouldn’t I walk away
with a smile in my future and
a seed of hope
like a spark in the night
why shouldn’t there be
a crown somewhere ahead or
at the very least
a rosebush
thorns and all

The whole poem can be read here:

All images/textures/brushes my own or bought. Edited with Photoshop.

I am a very creative person and it’s my way of dealing with the world, inside and out. I am only happy when I am making things or painting or writing. There are just not enough hours in the day…. I am into poetry and photo manipulation at the moment and also dabbling in photography. :-)
