This is the day, the very moment, for the best of the wild, wildly lost cranberries.

Hiding under lichen, alongside bright berry poseurs, in the bracken of gnarly trees, I know they hope to be found.

(Those tart little things, winking and ducking.)

They want to be found, I say.

For all their shyness they're soon chattering non-stop, as most introverts do when alone with you and a cup of coffee.

At the foot of the jack pine, in the toadstool's shadow we talk and talk.

And if it weren't for the darkening sky, and the wood rain slipping down my back, the cold of dusk dulling my fingers, we'd still be there, berries prattling on, ...

... I in bucket rhapsody.

Dare I say it? I think you've done the impossible with this post. You've helped me embrace the inevitable coming of autumn. Suddenly I find myself being ok with it showing up. Thanks friend! :)

Some of my favorite photos ever! So clear and crisp. I love cranberries but only ever get them in a store.
