Falling out of Summer

As Summer gently falls away,

she leaves me with a myriad of vivid memories,

all worth savoring and remembering.

They are coming with me

as Autumn sends a note of small brown leaves floating on air ,

 announcing her arrival.

The seasons are all visitors .

I’m happy to see them come and I’m sad when they go,

but there is always another coming

and that is exciting.

Sometimes, it’s good to remember just how wonderful life really is!

These are some memories my Summer leaves behind:

 

Bright Starry Nights………Fawns in Our Vineyard……..

Living in nature’s beauty……….Sounds of the Stream………Great Finds at the Flea Market.

My Peaceful Garden……Hot, Sunny Days……Fresh Peaches

Crazy Hail Storms…..Hummingbirds & Honeysuckle….. Beautiful Weddings

Tomato & Cheese on white with mayo……Dozens of baby goldfish in the pond.

A Profusion of Pink Water Lilies……..Wonderful visits with old friends

 Ice Cream………The Majesty of Thunder & Lightening Storms……Fun at the Beach

Shadows & Sun moving on the Mountain…..Wind Chimes…….The Solar Eclipse

A few wonderful days away……..The Sound of Cicadas…….Sadness at another season passing….

&

Joy that I was here to see it.

 

I’ve stopped making too many plans,

thinking about the future too much

because the truth is:

You just don’t know what’s coming.

So…..Swim in the present moment

“until your fingers get all pruny”.

That’s the only sensible thing to do!

Now, relax and wait for your friend Autumn to appear

in all her splendor.

More wonderful things are on the way!
