Fantasy for Blogophilia 34.5


Over the Hill and Far Away  or so it seems from my perspective. The tree stoops, its leaves leisurely float soundlessly to the snow covered ground, like angels’ tears. Five bright blue horses calmly amble among  the branches, several bending to nibble the sweet grass, while others stand in place, hushed, as if waiting for the artist to paint their portrait. The contrast and allure:   blue animals, white snow and green plant,  together  with the  golden and cadmium red foliage, this idyllic scene that I gaze upon, wounds my soul.  I gravitate toward the vision. The image  must be real. Dreams are never this breath taking.

    Hmmm – strangely I think dreams are often more breath taking than most of reality.

    Quite brilliant … I love the line **together with the golden and cadmium red foliage, this idyllic scene that I gaze upon, wounds my soul**… makes the scene very moving Sue… and I agree Mother Nature can out strip any dream with ease for sure… loved it girl… xxx

    It is so easy to gravitate to a reality that has the qualities of a dream state, Fantasy or reality this is a most excellent write!…But I am missing Gideon this week, I thought I saw a glimpse of him behind the street sign in picture 1. 🙂 8 points Earthling! 🙂

    Your description is always breathtaking. And the pic of the autumn leaves makes me wish fall would arrive down here. Probably not for another two weeks. 😦 But yours is beautiful already. Great job!

  10. sue says:

    Actually those pics were taken two years ago. It’s been pretty colourful here this year but leaves still on the trees. Thank you so much 😀

  11. Ah…I was swept away by sheer beauty… gorgeous!

  12. OH!!!! So very nice!!!

  13. Stunning imagery, Sue! Autumn is most definitely my favorite time of year…. and I have missed it for 25 years so you can imagine I’m in heaven right now. Lovely pictures too! 😀

  14. crazypjs says:

    You weave it well! Your picture of the rose looks very much like my rose garden right now. Such beauty can only come from nature. 🙂
