Fall encroaches on Summer
not an ending
… a new season dawns.

Fall gently nudges
as Summer takes a bow
opening a new show in town.

the culmination of flowers
not faded…but making room

One of my favorite poets, Paul F. Lenzi, of poesypluspolemics blog, included the Reblog button with his fascinating and most inspiring works of sheer genius of words…no need to ask me twice. 🙂 The Hubble Telescope shot is also breathtaking. Thanks Paul.
“Pillars of Creation” – Photo by Hubble Telescope
Secrets of creation hide deep in conflation
Of science with faith, of corpus with wraith,
Discrete bits of essence, immune from senescence,
That mark each warm creature, or cold lifeless feature,
Of all the known world, plus those unknown, thus hurled
Through vastness of space, push-pulled in their chase
By grave forces, unseen, save by eyes utmost keen
As detectors of naught, who find nothingness caught
By the physics of sleight, in mathematical light,
Racing outward, away from a focal array,
From a radiant heart that outburst apart
With the first stroke of time, Divine in its prime.
Before that release, all was soundless still peace,
When all matter, all dust, was consigned to the trust
Of that heart, then mere speck, the one salient check
Against stark eternity, charged with modernity,
Then, slowly it swelled, its inertia unquelled,
Now a tumescent…

This stand of Goldenrod has sort of evolved within a mowed field. Another frowned-upon weed that brightens the approach of Fall in Ohio.
I was delighted to see the Reblog button on this post by jansenphotos, on the excellent blog “Dutch Goes the Photo!” which features excellent photographs on a weekly theme. A visit (via link) to the Netherlands design studio collection called “Fragile Future” leads to a fascinating photo display of remarkable light structures. Thanks for the reblog.
The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge has the theme of Structure, which has made me very happy, as there is lots of structure in Nature and the world around us.
Sunday’s post focused on the structure of a fan structured leaf, with the angulation of each fold providing additional strength to the leaf over a rather large area. Today’s post goes more toward the delicate, as we look at the placement of the seeds of that dreaded lawn denizen, the dandelion. Each seed is constructed to be carried by the slightest of breezes to find a bit of disturbed soil, where it can take hold and germinate.
This is a closer look at the lovely dandelion…
This most delicate of structures has found its way across the ages to float forth and multiply. As an aside, a design studio in the Netherlands makes light sculptures that use the…

This ornamental apple tree is glorious in the Spring, loaded with blossoms. But as Fall approaches, for some reason, the leaves fade and die leaving the branches bare until after Winter.
These blossoms popped out after Monday’s eclipse of the Sun. I have no idea why, but I heard NASA or some other agency has requested reports of strange things happening…this qualifies. Also, my daughter’s blue Hydrangea turned purple (she lives next door.) My Lantana turned from pink to purple earlier in this Summer. (I realize that Hydrangeas do change color according to specific factors in the soil or whatever.)
This is shameless promotion! I admit it. The Band is TIME CAT, a local Akron, Ohio band which happens to be my granddaughter as vocalist, guitarist.
Time Cat was the headliner band at this event, which was sponsored by the Highland Square Neighborhood Association. Included were up to 130 area bands, which performed on front porches of various Highland homeowners.
I am also including a video which I made during the performance. This is my first attempt at video making, so it is obviously an amateur production. The footage could benefit from some editing/trimming, but that would cut out the audio/music portions, which I want to leave uncut.
Hey…it’s a rock concert…that means it’s good old rock n roll. Here’s a link to my video… I hope. oops…malfunction…I don’t know how to do the file type and all that tech stuff…I’ll post it separately…maybe. 🙂
In the event you don’t want to suffer through my videos…here’s a link to the Time Cat site. https://timecatmusic.bandcamp.com/
“Late Great” because this web was in a very precarious position…as is normal for spiders, apparently…as this splendid construction was demolished quickly when I ran right into it and ended up wearing the web like a hair-net…or veil…I forgot it was there. (Please see yesterday’s post for more web photos if you are so inclined.)
The deck is eight-feet wide.
By the way— my spider web photos are more about photography than spiders or webs. I have tried repeatedly to capture various topics, and consider it a learning experience.
OH! The spider is not really as big as she appears, she has a very large bug in her grip, we call it a stink-bug, triangular in shape.
