Vivaldi’s wrathful violins

Be the rainbow in the storms of life. The evening beam that smiles the clouds away, and tints tomorrow with prophetic ray.  ~Lord Byron

* * * * *
It’s that time again,
just before the streets and
the souls of walking people adopt
the crepuscular cover of the night
and the mass of watery atoms in the air,
engaged in a savage samba
with the ray- less sky
applauds the winds that
grow adventurous, almost chivalrous.
Leaves are spent under rain drops
and anxious whispers, and hope somehow
rises weary and little by little leaves.
I am left with bloodthirsty icons
of the four season
and in each of them, the sun bows
to Vivaldi’s wrathful violins.

    It moves with quick precise strokes and lively with images. Nice work! :-) You are back and in top form. Bravo!

      P.S.: In love with the photo too. Is that a red maple or are the leaves turning there? Would seem to be late season for that.

        The picture is from my trip to Bulgaria in early November when the leaves were turning there, I’m not sure what kind of tree I’ve photographed, but it was nice with the raindrops on it! Here in Athens we don’t have the changing colors of trees, and I recently discovered that is because they cut the branches with leaves before they fade into yellow, and in April/ May that’s why all trees here looks so young and refreshed! Last year, because of the crisis, I guess the town halls didn’t have the money to do that, we had autumn in January :) Thank you Jamie!
