Photo (and Poetry) Blog


Welcome! This is mainly a photo blog, but I couldn't resist adding my other interest - literature, and poetry in special. Hunting down the best photograph to accompany a poem is a challenge I love. I hope you will enjoy it too!

I Saw Old Autumn

Autumn Forest by Mihaela Limberea www.limberea.com



I  saw old Autumn in the misty morn stand shadowless like silence, listening to silence.


Thomas Hood


Autumn by Mihaela Limberea www.limberea.com



There is a harmony in autumn, and a luster in its sky, which through the summer is not heard or seen, as if it could not be, as if it had not been!


P. B. Shelley


Into the Woods by Mihaela Limberea www.limberea.com



Now Autumn’s fire burns slowly along the woods and day by day the dead leaves fall and melt.


William Allingham


There is a part of me that will forever want to be walking under autumn leaves ...

Autumn by Mihaela Limberea


There is a part of me that will forever want to be walking under autumn leaves, carrying a briefcase containing the works of Shakespeare and Yeats and a portable chess set. I will pass an old tree under which once on a summer night I lay on the grass with a fragrant young woman and we quoted e.e. cummings back and forth.


Roger Ebert


October

October



October is the month for painted leaves. Their rich glow now flashes round the world. As fruits and leaves and the day itself acquire a bright tint just before they fall, so the year near its setting. October is its sunset sky; November the later twilight.

How do you start a new post after several months silence? I surely don’t know, so I’ll just jump into it right away. 


I’m working on a new book, and I realized I simply cannot focus on anything else while I’m writing on the book. It just doesn’t work for me. I miss photographing and I’ve never stopped completely actually. I would still take photos on occasion, even if I don’t publish them.  My plan for now is to work on a few photos every now and then, when I need to take a break from writing, so there’ll always be something new for you.

The Beautiful Spring Came ...

Spring II




The beautiful spring came; and when Nature resumes her loveliness, the human soul is apt to revive also.

He Who Learns Must Suffer

Tree



He who learns must suffer. And even in our sleep pain that cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, and in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God.
