Autumn arrives

18 Apr

The wind blows the golden red leaves out of the tree and they dance and somersault across the sky. Autumn is here.

autumn descends

26 Mar

The days pass by, and summer descends into autumn.  The ivy on the barracks turns from green to flaming red.  The sun rises later each morning, slow to melt through the chill fog.  And you wonder where the time slipped away to.

Now is the time to reap the last of the harvest, and to clear away the fading summertime abundance from the garden.  Feed and nourish the earth.  Time to plant the winter’s crops while there is still some memory of warmth left in the ground.

Change is in the crisp wind.  Whispering for you to prepare, to nourish your soul and stockpile your nuts and knowledge.  Be grateful for the days in the sun and feather your nest for the months ahead.  Reflect on where you are and where you want to go, for soon there will be much shorter blooms of light to illuminate your days.

I am watching hot air balloons drift across the grey-blue sky of morning.  Bright sparks of colour floating in a monochrome vista, like lazy errant thoughts.

And the seasons follow each other as they always have, yet there is something new to discover in each of them.  The relentless changing faces of life.  New growth, old growth and the constant rhythm slow persistent evolution.
