A Little Autumn Tree Music

When I look at photographs of deciduous trees in Autumn embroidering the landscape in their translucent yellows, burnished reds, deep wines, and bright golds, I think of the words from David’s prayer of thanksgiving to the Lord, above, where the Psalmist compared trees to choirs.

Perhaps David the lyricist was inspired to put his words also to song as he took sight of some yellow-leafed Fall fig (Ficus sycomorus) or soft, red-hued terebinth (Pistacia palaestina) of ancient Israel that triggered his imagination back then where he lived, as some maple, ash, or oak in our locales might inspire us, today.

But enough said.

Enjoy the views from https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Autumn that features images of Fall trees, plants, cities, and animals.

And maybe also hum your own tune** to go with.

Or just spend a few moments in quiet respite, reverence, and/or renewal and allow God’s landscape to inspire you.

**If you enjoy classical music, you might enjoy Vivaldi’s “Four Seasons,” Autumn starts at 20:59.

Or if you enjoy jazz, consider a listen to David Escher’s arrangement of “Autumn Leaves”:
