The Coming Autumn

Autumn is nearly upon us. The days are beginning to show shorter. Just a touch of color is making it's presence known on leaves that dance in the afternoon breeze. Sunlight filters the changes we see and makes autumn's haze a delight to the visual senses. Tomorrow I will drive north towards Kentucky and look around to see what has changed since my last drive that way a week ago.

I love the cool nights and early mornings. The nights were made to snuggle under covers. The mornings are for stepping out barefoot to see the sun rise with a steaming cup of coffee and a good book to keep me company. Soon, I will have to tuck myself away in a blanket, wool socks and boots then lastly, inside, as I won't be able to withstand the cold of winter from my porch.

Change is the only constant in life as is evident by the seasons......

The Dance

Let the dancing begin...
We were together, spinning and turning,
this way and that,
joyful in the moment
paws on toes
as we stepped out into the day.

The morning quivers with quietness soon to be broken by the business of the day...
As the stars begin to fade away and the day begins to break.
I stepped out into the faintest light of dawn
to hear the cricket song....

A New Beginning

A New Beginning:
start slow they say
as it takes time to grow a day
seconds become minutes
minutes become hours
and hours become days....

I am counting time....
