DC: Cover


under the cover of shade
and light

a red leaf 


under cover
protection of branches
a mushroom dries
changing form and chemical
to become just right food
for:


the squirrel
sits
under cover of golden Tamarack needles and branches
nearly hidden in shade

eating a dry mushroom


under cover
of the thick forest
a rosy mushroom thrives
bathed in soft evening light


under the cover of clouds
light gently caresses
Autumn
~

Lovely Ariane has hosted DC this weekend 
with the theme: Cover
for me, what is held, covered, protected
came to mind

thank you Ariane

  3. Just beautiful seasonal shots in nature. Each one has its own charm, so it's difficult to have a favourite! That squirrel is darned cute though!

  16. I love popping in to your "other" blog Tammie. Lovely photographs of the most lovely place. We've got a few squirrels here in the garden and they love climbing our neighbour's enormous bronze beech and eating the seeds. Then they chuck the seed pods down a my cats and laugh and scamper away. :D

  33. Dear Tammie - I always wonder which would be better to call your blog, photographic poem or poetic photograph. Your words and photos synchronize to create a magical story. I’m marveled at your mind eyes to find such nice things fitting to the theme “cover” and your photographic skills to capture the light. I especially like the wine red leaf and the squirrel.
