The dried grasses of late summer
are bending and sprawling
from dew borne on
the cooler night of a changing season.
Slumber is rejuvenation and dreams
encapsulate fanciful recounts of
life thus far.
Embracing change is
shedding the old skin of the past with
renewal to behold new life.
Weather abides and
turns dismal with fog once again
hovering above the earth as the icy
hoarfrost blankets the ground
to ensure no coldness escapes.
It is natural and it is essential.
As the last rusty leaf from the sycamore falls,
I am reminded all things are as God intends.
Take a deep breath and be reborn into
the change in this, your season.
