"A 'Late' Fall"
By Denny Jump
The seasons come and the seasons go,
Their exact arrival, we never know,
Some come early, some come late,
But as for autumn, I can never wait;
The season of colour, the season of light,
The season I dream about all through the night;
This year she stays far, far away,
She should be here now, but she is still on the way;
so we scratch and sniff to get a taste
from photos and books, leave nothing to waste!
we need our fix, an autumnal hit;
Yet, she teases us, still, and gives us a fit;
So, just dream of her as best you can;
wait and wait and make your plan;
She will be here, that is for sure,
That time of fall, so rich and pure:
A Late Fall.
** Staples Singers - "Respect Yourself"
- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)
- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.
::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"; Earth Wind and Fire
