The Story of a TreeThe Story of a TreeThe Story of a Tree by Love2B
I remember the beginning.
My first memory consists of being engulfed in the moist earth. I remember how rich the nutrients were and how soft the dirt felt, as if it had just been tilled. Worms would slide past me in the dark, brushing against my outer shell, leaving a faint tickling sensation. These were the memories that I cherished. The times when I was safe and warm in the womb of Mother Earth.
After my time in the Mother's womb, a strange urging sensation began deep inside me, as if a seed had been planted in my pit. Limbs began to spring forth from my shell, breaking its outer layer. I slowly peeled back my encasement, slowly exposing my bear, new skin to the surrounding earth. I pushed my growing limbs through the soil, deeper and deeper down. My legs pushed down through the dirt, stones and mud, looking to quench my never ending thirst. As my legs pushed down, my a

Happy ThoughtsHappy Thoughts by Neko442
Open your eyes.
A breeze picks up.
You hug yourself tight.
The trees sway.
Leaves break free from their grip.
Swirling gracefully through the air.
Eventually floating to the ground in sweet surrender.
Your sight loses focus.
The scene becoming a no longer detailed blur of colours.
A harmonious blend of red, orange, and yellow.
The air is crisp.
The scent of spice lingers.
You can hint the crackling of fire in the distance.
It's that feeling.
You bask in the moment.
Autumn has arrived.
Golden Seasonthe wind whistlesGolden Season by olokp
a soft melody
grazing through fields
with its tail of crisp cold
trailing behind it
racing through the forest of giants
stretching their humongous arms out
as to hug the sky
reaching up taller and taller
maybe to feel the wool spun clouds embrace
spinning around in glee
gathering bits of rocky terrain
the sharp scent of spice
and jovial smiles of friends old and new
evening comes and dusk paints the sky in orange
the frolicsome breeze subsides
one by one
giants close their eyes
gold falls with the light
creatures will sleep
but the children dance with the gold
I Knew You in Your AutumnI knew you in your autumn,I Knew You in Your Autumn by ThornyEnglishRose
your green days turning golden
then dancing before us, passing gently
one by one, blazing,
the colours of fire. I see them
framed by bright blue sky, crisp and clear,
your sunshine not yet fading but a bite to the wind
as suddenly you fly
in one last blizzard of
brown, yellow, orange (so much bolder
than when you were only green) and
red, your favourite colour against
blue, mine. The sun is brighter than ever
but sets all too soon. The night is deep,
an eternity of memories, squirreled away
to keep you safe, your heart fragile,
you are frightened of the cold. I know
how you miss your spring and summer.
Your days have fallen, but we kick them up
and laugh and smile as they stick to our clothes, our hair,
our hearts. They whisper and they shout,
warm and stark and whole and beautiful
but they are dying.
The feisty bite turns to bitter chill.
The blue turns dull, to grey then black
and rain dampens your days
|Anyone can join, you do not NEED to submit anything but we would very much appreciate if you did.|
Submission for "Leaf shots": The picture has to be mostly focused at a leaf/leaves.
To become a contributor you must upload at least two Autumn related photos three days after you become one. Or before, just as soon as possible. Members are for occasionally wanting to look at the photos mostly and perhaps uploading one or two who just happened to be in Autumn theme.
Submission for "Trees": The picture needs to focus at one tree or more, even branches are included here but if the camera has something else but trees in focus, like a bench, it's a scene and not just a tree shot.
Submission for "Ground": Camera needs to be either aimed downwards or tilted down to get here, sometimes if more than just the ground is in focus it can be counted as a scene.
Submission for "Rivers and lakes": Here, not JUST rivers and lakes are allowed, of course all natural forms of water are allowed, some artificial are fine too but the category is focusing at the water in Autumn time.
Submission for "Scene": When there's too much on the picture for it being categorized in others, for example if there is a photo of a couple of trees surrounding an old bench with a couple on it and there's a bunch of leaves on the ground, we cannot put it in "leaf shots" because it's not just leaves in the picture. It's a scene.
Submission for "Pumpkins": Gourds, orange,red, white, green and moldy, however you please. Just gourds. Doesn't need to be ONE or MULTIPLE specifically.
Submission for "Crops": Wheat, corn and such things go on here. They are often thought about when thinking about Autumn, there's more than just golden and crimson leaves with pumpkins to Autumn, y'know.
Submission for "Fashion": Different ways people dress up for Autumn. Autumn is a time where it's not too cold or too warm, but a chilly breeze may come occasionally and it's a perfect season for fashion ideas.
Submission for "People": People in places related to Autumn or visible Autumn theme in the background. Ladies named Autumn isn't what the category is for. Sorry, Autumn.
Submission for "Early snow": When the lakes begin to frost, the wet leaves begin to turn brown and the first few snow crystals fall on our cheeks but it is still Autumn and not winter, this category is made for all that.
Submission for "Traditional art": Hand drawn by pencil, brush or whatever you use. Even sharpies. As long as it is Autumn themed. Doesn't even need to be coloured.
Submission for "Digital art": Art made by software such as Microsoft paint or Photoshop go here. Minor edits to photos are not counted, I mean fully DRAWN by software.
Submission for "Poetry": Poetry that makes us think about Autumn, is about Autumn or describes Autumn goes here.
Submission for: "Flowers, fungi, berries and such": Exactly what it sounds like. These organisms in an Autumn theme.
