Poem for Autumn

Season of splendor.

As Mother Earth gently rests her weary head.

Preparing for the long sleep ahead.

The Stillness:

Harbinger to the winter chill.


But for now…

Nature’s paintbrush is busy.

With brilliant palette of crimson and gold.

The forest ablaze with color.

As the late summer sun still warms the days.


My favorite season.

It’s beauty far surpassing the others.

A magical time of awakenings and endings.

Like no other.

A joy to once again rediscover.


We  are reminded of another year’s passing.

Of changes, inevitable.

Required in all things.

And to everything there is a season,

and a reason we will find,

for all.



It’s loveliness and wonder endures.

It’s arrival.

Always a feast for the senses.

A gilded gift we receive.

To dazzle and delight.


We put away our thoughts.

Of the cold days ahead.

There is so much to enjoy right now.

Inspiring us.

Autumn’s beauty to behold.

We are having an absolutely glorious autumn, here in BC. Warm, sunny days with just the hint of a breeze and nice cool evenings.

It’s been so invigorating, especially after the intense temps. this summer. 

How I fall!

Seems like it’s the fav season for more and more people now. It’s always been mine.

I hope you enjoy the photo and poem above, celebrating the wonder of this magical time of year.

How is the weather where you are?

Have a wonderful autumn ! :)

What a lovely photo and poem, especially to start the day.

And what a visual and inspiring “treat” this was to see in my WP reader today. Thanks Lauren. :)

Wishing you a wonderful day!

my soul is reborn, following

Stroll/scroll along…..hope you enjoy the views as much as I did!


Mountain Ash at it’s peak.


The holly was just starting to turn.


 Berries everywhere and in so many colors.


 Breathtaking pinks and soft green.


Brown-eyed Susan was still looking fine! ;)


Someone’s lucky: a  glorious front yard tree.


Regal purple. A beautiful sight to behold.

Happy Autumn! Isn’t it grand? :)

Dragonfly Hug


Isn’t this artwork, oh so pretty and unique?

I love dragonflies and this mandala drawn by Teri Casper caught my attention today, in a big way.

Hope your summer is going well!

I posted at Veggies…today too with a short update what I’ve been up to for the past couple of months.

Happy Week! Hugs, G

This idea has been in my mind but I sure had difficulty getting the idea on paper.  I like using nature as my inspiration.

A dragonfly hug
To this mandala of blooms
It is mutual
