Not today, I’m not going to think about summer is coming to an end. I want to reflect on the moments shared with others and the laughs that have lifted my spirits. Those warm days with a mild breeze, birds flying overhead and breathing in the freshness of grass cut. The summer joys of gathering around the tantalizing aroma of the grill while it cooked my favorite meal and the taste of homemade ice cream. Those strolls on the shore, after a day of play in the waves, feeling relaxed while waves softly wash my feet and there seemed to be magic in the air. The serene evening of sitting on the screened porch while crickets are keeping temp as they play. The travels and trips to see family and friends has been something to treasure from summer, also, the experiences have given me an optimistic hopefulness to writing and see things more creative.
So, I will not say “good-bye” to summer, but will welcome autumn and the joys of new experiences to be shared as I look forward to hikes, changing of the leaves, cozy-hoodie weather, bonfires, photographing color and whatever comes my way that can inspire and evolve creativity!
Seasons May Disappear in the Wind
Capture the sunrise; allow the newness to unfold,
Graciously accept the blessings with the setting sun.
Embrace the moment that was meant to be shared,
Each season is changing and disappears in the wind.
Dream with passion, for it can sparkle like the stars,
Guidance and strength; lean on the Guardian of Hope.
Rise to embrace, the challenges as they develop,
Find the gift embedded, rich like the red sky of night.
