A wind has blown the rain away and blown the sky away and all the leaves away, and the trees stand. I think, I too, have known autumn too long. e. e. cummings
My sorrow, when she’s here with me, thinks these dark days of autumn rain are beautiful as days can be; she loves the bare, the withered tree; she walks the sodden pasture lane. Robert Frost
Red, orange, yellow, lime, leaves in piles take me back in time, to bonfires, and wienie roasts, to dancing fall harvest with marsh-mellow toasts. Hayrides, rodeos, simmering ciders, wines, take my heart back to times. Old men starts to under plow the hills, while old women bake bread cooling on window sills, the children sing and play, the sound of Southern lullabies all day. Evening cools, with leftover pie, a belly full of grits, bacon and rye, Southern fall comes to call reminding us of days gone by, leadings to the now and why, we long for the family ties that bring back lullabies of love.- deborahmills © 2016
Fall has come. The Season of changing from the fresh green grasses, leading to hot summer nights, to a time of rest, of waiting, of leading to the planting of new seeds, while the clearing of the old has begun to grow. We can see the beauty of this time of year, while in our lives, our souls, our spirits we hate the time of waiting, we fail to see the beauty in the time of rest. Waiting gives us strength for the changes to come. For only in conflicts, differences of ways, ideas, thoughts, plans can the dream come to us. Change is the only constant thing we have in our lives, so the wait time restores our soul, renews our spirits. Much like the army retreats from battle, our waiting time is beautiful renewal of our strength, to hit life running again toward our dream
