feeling the wild

This strangely still pause between

summer and autumn, greenery and gold,

and the heart and rising wind

that is once again readying itself

to rush it all away in a climactic

symphony of color and scent is-

in my opinion, one of the best part

of living on Earth.

~Victoria Erickson

sip slowly and lovingly these sweet light-filled days…

inquiry for today~ wonder your whole life about the spaciousness between seasons….

how to be all right

On summer evenings we sat in the yard,

the house dark,

the stars bright overhead.

The laps and arms of the old held the young.

As we talked we knew

by the dark distances of Heaven’s lights

our smallness,

and the greatness of our love.

~Wendell Berry
