Autumn: the season of grace

“As Autumn begins
its season of grace
so my heart sings
at Your embrace.” 


I so look forward to the season of Autumn (the Fall).  In Scotland (UK), the leaves are starting to turn already, and golden hues of copper, bronze, amber and yellow are gradually replacing the vibrant greens of summer.  I know I can be prone to a touch of melancholy at this time of year.  But let’s not view this season as a ‘death’ of summer.  A friend told me this week that she rejoices in the coming of Autumn and Winter when all the leaves drop off trees and shrubs to reveal  their true shape and structure for all to see.  That’s a lovely way to look at it, isn’t it!

So, I am going to try very hard to embrace this season as one of grace, a time of winding down and relaxing; a time of reflection, of moving with the natural rhythm.  I hope too that more poems come through as I look without (at the amazing ever-changing natural world) and within (to my physical, emotional and spiritual growth).   Wishing you all a lovely week.  Anita.
