Mystery in Look Park!

It’s the height of the autumn season here in Western Massachusetts. We’re caught, Janus-fashion, looking back at the lushness of summer and anticipating the austerity of winter. But in-between we dwell in a landscape of brilliance and decay all at once. The corn is gone (alas) but pumpkins are everywhere:

Orange Glory

Trees erupt in a final blaze of glory:

Autumn Flames

While already their fallen leaves carpet the ground:

Fallen Leaves

Here among them is the cat who walks by himself, the beauty salon cat who may or may not answer to his name of Henry:

Henry the Cat

On a recent warm day we went for a walk in our beloved Look Park, and returned with a quiver full of mystery. Where will the arrow lead?

Going Where?

Who is about to follow it?

Who Follows?

What do we find? Only an enigmatic pool —

    Judith this is a fabulous selection – and I’ll be back to do a bit more contemplating because I feel a story … hidden, somewhere … What can I say? This is a “WOW!” post.

    The single leaf in the water looks like an eye, giving an added air of mystery to what may dwell there.
