The Smile of the Sun

The sun reappeared after some days of rain. No, it has been pouring. Day and night, but yesterday the sun decided to take a look at us.
She’s still smiling. She looks approvingly at the leaves, bitten my frost during the night. Bites have been strong, the leaves have bled.
It’s burgundy, cherry, all kinds of red everywhere, and where the icy teeth of the winter-to-be haven’t bitten; there are spots of orange, yellow and green still to be seen.

The sun continues to beam. It’s going to be a cold night, the prologue of an everlasting season.
The sun knows it’s her time to take a nap, to sleep for some months.
No wonder she is grinning.

I love it, Susu! I also love the idea that sleeping all winter is a dream you share with the sun!

I don't want to sleep yet!
I need some green!
It's still there,

You must live by the artic circle, Susupetal! It's still green down here with a light touch of yellow :D

SusuPetal said...

Oh, I have so much same with the sun, Mick -we're both so sunny:)

A light touch of yellow????? Lepis, it's heavier than that!

Oh, that´s why the sun was so SUNNY yesterday! :)

We haven´t have the frost yet here, but there´s more and more yellow day by day.

SusuPetal said...

That is why, Liisa!
The frost is coming...

September can be beautiful, as long as the sun stays with us, chrome3d.

SusuPetal said...

Thanks, Azer. Animations are fun to do, but they require a lot of work!

The leaves are still green here, some are starting to get a bit yellow but that's all. Maybe you should pay us a visit?

SusuPetal said...

Oh, I'd love to come down there, HPY, but it seems to rain an awful lot there!

Peter said...

I wonder if you are not worshiping the sune even more than the ancient Egyptians, the Incas...!

SusuPetal said...

Maybe I've been an Egyptian in my earlier life, Peter:)

hpy said...

SusuPetal said...
