What a wonderful poem, thought, post, story, fable…
I wish I had written this!
Thanks! I got the gentle, loud lesson.
Thank you Jacquline! I wake up every morning to the view of a wild but protected lake in my backyard. It is an ancient cypress knee swamp sprawling along what is now a golf course. The water sparkles in the morning light. An assortment of birds like herons, Pileated wood peckers and geese enjoy the refuge. This time of year the gators are deep in the mud, but we often see a few otters under our small dock. Budding trees and shrubs promise spring is near…
The beauty of nature fills our lives with peace, joy and a sure sense of of well-being…
Thanks for your great post!

Today is still dark outside my window.
A promise of sweeping chill.
My mind and senses groan for the coming of it like the bee to the flower.
Come, Fall in all your glory!
Come with your cleansing wind!
Brush away the stickiness in my head.
The old stuffy clamminess, heat, and stuff of piled up
summer dog-days weighing me down.
Brush through my hair, my brain and soul.
Let me sprout a pair of wings perhaps, that I could dance on your breeze!
Or set me free upon the air in a huge rising balloon so as to see the entire earth.
Let me sense, touch, taste, breathe, live into the crisp sharp newness of Fall.
