Out Past the Sun: 5 Walks in Woods



Walking in woods...


Woods V (M.A. Reilly 2013)




Come—I’ll trace you one final autumn,and you can trace your last homecoming
into the snow or the sun.
 - Annie Finch, "Final Autumn"
Woods I (M.A. Reilly 2013)




























This morning, it felt like Sunday.

The heavens did their part
By casting no shadow along the boardwalk
Or the row of vacant cottages,
Among them a small church
With a dozen gray tombstones huddled close
As if they, too, had the shivers. 

- Charles Simic "Late September"
Woods II  (M.A. Reilly 2013)


Woods IV (M.A. Reilly 2013)
Woods III (M.A. Reilly 2013)

"O wild West Wind, thou breath of Autumn's being.
Thou, from whose unseen presence the leaves dead
Are driven, like ghosts from an enchanter fleeing."

-  Percy Bysshe Shelley

    1. Thanks Renee. After all the places we traveled this summer, so nice to be making images in woods near my home.
