Autumn is Here!!

One of my favorite seasons has just begun its new transformation; it is now in the early stages, for the trees still maintain their green summer foliage, just one or two leaves here and there have changed their colors to crimson reds and yellows. The air is crisper, the winds blow more fiercely, the days become shorter, there is a feeling of renewal as the birth of a new season approaches. The earth shares of her summer bounties, little country side stands sell of their crops, a wide variety of apples such as : honey crisp apples, mutzu, summer reds and all sorts of pumkins, peaches, pears, onions, and lovely figs grace the countryside with their colours.
Autumn or even better said.....Fall, when the leaves drop gracefully one by one outwardly towards the ground...feeding the earth once more in this new cycle with nutrients from its leaves to nourish its soils . The trees are left bare of its natural cover exposing their nakedness to the world, thus a certain feeling of somberness surrounds all, yet Nature expresses her happy face with the wondrous array of colours she portrays! Autumn......its sunsets filled with romanticisms take your breath away! There is a slower pace occurring, as if Mother Nature begins to prepare for her moment of silence and deep slumber. Nature's true nature derives from the Universal Source, carrying within its roots a deep and ancient wisdom, which expresses itself in all of its creating seasons in being perfection itself.
She has kept herself busy during the spring and summer months, bringing new life to all she touches and now it is time to recover her energies and replenish inasmuch as she has so innately given throughout the year. There is a time for all seasons in Nature as well as in our spirituality/humanity,we must take time to ponder, honor our sacredness, observe and to learn from her; to allow a rest from the chatter, noisy sounds of our minds and external surroundings. To rid ourselves of the unwanted, and make room for what is to come; in other words to undress before the world in our truth exposing our true nature.
Go into the depths of your souls at this moment in time, rejuvenate with the calming, soothing forces of Autumn, refilling and reawakening our hearts.. minds with its quiet and serene
passing. Drink in the timeless magic of wondrous Autumn and become One with its Nature, thus will we also transform.......

I love how poetically you express yourself. I too love the fall and it IS my favorite season. I don't know what it is about this season that makes it so romantic to me, but it always makes me think of new love. I love to think that we can learn something from our natural surroundings in that we can also be silent for a while; getting away from our noisy minds. I love to just BE in the moment, but it's still something I actually have to think about doesn't come quite so naturally...yet. Life is meant to be enjoyed in this way...I love to immerse myself in things I love and live in just that moment. Well, I think I will move on now, but I love you!

I like your new background, but it's very hard to read your posts because of the dark colored font.

Are you getting sick of my comments all the time!? Oh well. Anyway, I knew you would figure out the color thing out on your own. You're one smart cookie...but not THE Cookie.
