Harvest Time

We reap and we sow,
an emergence of pleasure.
The harvest begins.
Upon Learning, by Melissa Schwartz

Agra, India

It is only the farmer who faithfully plants seeds in the Spring,
who reaps a harvest in the Autumn.

– B. C. Forbes

Lambari, Brazil

La Esperanza, Colombia

The thankful receiver bears a plentiful harvest.
– William Blake

Banaue, Philippines

Wadi Hadhramaut, Yemen

The law of harvest is to reap more than you sow.
Sow an act, and you reap a habit.
Sow a habit and you reap a character.
Sow a character and you reap a destiny.

– James Allen

Trevi, Umbria, Italy

Kathmandu Valley, Nepal

Nuwara Eliya, Sri Lanka


In seed time learn, in harvest teach, in winter enjoy.
– William Blake

Srinagar, Kashmir

Under the summer roses
When the flagrant crimson
Lurks in the dusk
Of the wild red leaves,
Love, with little hands,
Comes and touches you
With a thousand memories,
And asks you
Beautiful, unanswerable questions.
Under The Harvest Moon
 Carl Sandburg




West Africa



Fox dances with delight
whilst owl hoots for joy
Harvest Moon Rises, by Linda Jackson

Srinagar, Kashmir


Wake up now, look alive,
for here is a day off work just to praise Creation:
the turkey, the squash, and the corn,
these things that ate and drank sunshine, grass, mud, and rain,
and then in the shortening days laid down their
lives for our welfare and onward resolve. . .
Thanksgiving is Creation’s birthday party.
Praise harvest, a pause and sign on the breath of immortality.
– Barbara Kingsolver

    Looking at your pictures, I have all your books, I not only get an experience of the beauty of daily live all over the world but also more understanding for the people, subject of your eye and camera. You make the world a bit more livible despite of all the misery and despoot that so many people have to live in. Gives a bit of hope.
