Fall Leaves by Alyce Wilson

Deep into Autumn here in the Northeastern part of the United States, our contributors cultivate a vision of the season.

Incoming Fall” by Joanna Weston provides a snapshot of a garden in early fall.

For Solitude’s Sake” by John Grey evokes that certain quality of autumn light that produces conflicting emotions.

Biophilia” by Michael Estabrook captures a moment of beauty in a backyard garden.

The Garden of God” by Michael H. Brownstein uses the garden as a metaphor for grief.

Cauldron” by Ayaz Daryl Nielsen reveals to us the calm magic of sunset.

Fall in Philadelphia” by Amy Barone delves into nostalgia for a season of the year and a season of life.

This week, all the illustrations are photos by editor Alyce Wilson.
