As Summer falls away,
she leaves me with a myriad of vivd memories.
All the images are worth savoring and they are coming with me,
Autumn sends a note of golden 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 leave
but there is always another to follow and that is exciting.
It’s good to remember just how wonderful every day life really is.
Perfect, Balmy Summer evenings…
The Ocean on Hot, Sunny Days……
Hummingbirds and Honeysuckle… …..
Tomato & American Cheese on White with Mayo……..
Laughter with friends…..Ice Cream with peaches
The Majesty of Thunder & Lightening Storms….
Wind Chimes…… Peace & Quiet…
Sadness at the passing of another season.
Joy that I was here to experience it.
I’ve stopped making too many plans
or thinking a lot about the future .
Because the truth is:
You just don’t know what’s coming.
So, swim in the present moment,
“until your fingers get all pruny”.
Then, gently let go of Summer.
Wait for your old friend, Autumn
to appear in all her splendor.
Welcome her with open arms .
She is bringing
more wonderful things, new experiences,
and another season of change and surprise.
Rejoice that you are here to see it.
