Saw this pile of leaves across the street. A couple of swift kicks later, it looked much happier. But all too soon, the work of art was vandalized and swept away. The END. Like this:Like Loading... Related AutumnSidewalk drama in four snapshots Image

You created a foliar version of a Happy Meal. As for the ending, ’tis a tale told by a leaf-blower, full of sound and fury.
I think Shakespeare was sometimes rakish, but I guess he did say “Blow, winds and crack your cheeks!” so I guess he’d like leaf-blowers.
I wonder if the guy with the leaf blower noticed and appreciated that smile before he destroyed it? (Insert deep philosophical musing here.) I’m glad you managed a photo before it disappeared!
Thanks Linda. I figured the wind would blow the leaves away, he just helped things along. Probably hard to be philosophical with the racket from a leaf blower going on. Raking, now that’s when you’ve got time for some deep philosophical thinking! 🙂
I’ve seen a pile of leaves form a huge heart, right at my feet. It was especially odd because the whole day, preceding, seemed to surround heart depictions in one way or another. Which was even stranger, because I had woken up from a dream telling me to: “Look for the 5th heart.”
Interesting, and what a mysterious message!
Perfectly spotted, Robert!
When I see leaves in our yard, I see much work to be done. But a happy face is always welcome.
Thank you, Peter, yes a smile is always good to see. It’s a big job to rake and bag the leaves, or haul them to the compost pile, etc. but we’re allowed to play with them a bit first!
Ach! the dreaded leaf blower. Wrecker of artistic creations far and wide.
😃 Thank you, Anne. I bet the origami artists steer clear of those leaf blowers too!
Autumn ephemera. Nice.
Thank you. This year autumn seemed particularly short-lived somehow.
The leaf mime strikes again.
Ha! Yes, people want the mime to stay quiet and leaf.
Much the same way they react to my jokes.
Great, Robert, I’m glad you caught the drama. 🙂
Thanks, Lynn, pretty riveting story, right?
You riveted the quotidian right to this post. There will never be enough of that. 😉
Wonderful fun face while it lasted!
