A morning walk in the garden

Oh think these pitiful things

 looked like these
Posted by Picasa
not too long ago,but I walked on

and while walking in the garden this morning after last night's gusty storm, I noticed one tiny leaf in the center of this tabletop....ohhh! I said in happiness... hoping the garden fairy heard me....I love it!

But I was humbled most by the stepping stones
that had gathered things in the night
hoping I would pause and see
what beauty still
is there for me
if I only look

I wish I could take better photos because I would have shown you the tiny damsel fly...a red one
that flitted about the goldenrod and the Thrush I spotted fleeing the red twig dogwoods as got near
but I guess I moved like a dinosaur or a rhino through the fallen leaves 
and they were gone. I'm am settling myself in to take in the entering of this new season
I know I love him, but I guess it is so easy for us humans to mourn what we had... instead of seeing what we have..... 
So I put on my "Moment" spectacles and really took a look today to go marinate some chicken for tomorrow

..oh...I see that label still on that lemon....oh dear
