A Crown of Autumn Leaves


When autumn gathers, the tree


That the leaves sang


Reddens dark slowly, then, suddenly free,


Turns like a key,


Opening air where they hang



Felt by Yvette Cals

I wanted to respond to your earlier post of felt peace flagss. They are beautiful hanging from tress and out in nature and I love the quotes, especially that of Gibran. He is my favorite of all time.

I am curious as to what you hung in the trees-the whispy flowing drap of cloth. It's rather haunting and lovely.

Jasmine said...

Thank you Cheryl. The whispy flowing cloth is an eco dyed silk with nuno felted details. It was a gift from fibre artist Yvette of Felting Your Soul. I love it so much. Her work really is wearable art, I feel honoured to have it.

Gorgeous fabric, it's so ethereal in the tree :D

Thank you for your comments. It was a tough decision I made, but necessary as the child I was responsible for became uncontrollable :(

I'm obviously the only one slightly disturbed by the pictures. Beautiful, yes, but also such a sense of a presence, not quite of our world. And not entirely benign - some ancient spirit or force.
So, powerful, for me, but not pleasant.

Seasons of mist
and gossamer cobwebs, pierced by the sun's rays.
Haunting, strange, other worldly beauty.x

Lovely, Jasmine our trees are not turning quite yet autumn makes me sad and glad at the same time!

Tammie said...

I, too, come late to comment on the peace flags...but wanted to add:
"Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent" Issac Asimov..

The nuno and tree slip and catch each other seemingly one at times. A flag of Autumn.

I like how the sun shines through the felt and catches the softness of such.Something very comforting.

I thought I saw rabbits emerging out of the clothed tree. Amazing!

Truly mystic.
