Autumn Dance

Every leaf speaks bliss to me
Fluttering from the autumn tree.
–Emily Bronte, “Fall Leaves, Fall”

If you have three minutes to spare, perhaps you will enjoy this video of a leaf dancing and floating in celebration of autumn. I filmed the leaf October 1 while catching some fresh air just before a mid-morning meeting.

The leaf danced in the wind for hours. I was mesmerized by its performance and noted it throughout the day. Though I could not see it, a spiderweb must have aided in its dance. Or was it the magic of autumn?

The leaf is perfect for linking up with Dawn of The Day After in the Festival of Leaves photo challenge. It seems to be holding its very own festival!

      It was a really, really long dance. I thought perhaps it would fall while I was filming it, but it didn’t. Sadly, I couldn’t watch it all day, but I did capture more than one video. 😉

    This is beautiful, your stillness calmed me. Love the video, it reminds me of the scene in American Beauty where the guy filmed the plastic bag dancing in the wind. I loved that scene, and I love this.
