September 21, 2021—autumn
Imagination, Day 22
“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.”
― John Muir
The autumnal equinox.
The Harvest Moon
Some people rejoice at the arrival of the fall season,
As the summer heat abates and the sky turns a brilliant blue
Some people despair with the arrival of autumn
Because they know it is the herald
That trumpets in the desolate winter.
I’m just happy to have another day to be here
A day to watch the flowers as they complete their cycle of blooming
A day to watch the birds chirping, eating, and bathing
A day to laugh in as I share my face with the breeze.
Savor the seasons
