Fall, My Love

Leaves change from green to orange, yellow and red, dropping from the tree to blanket the world below.

Some fall faster than others leaving a single leaf at the top of the tree holding on, not ready to let go just yet of another year.

Seeing the transition prepares my spirit for saying goodbye, all while saying hello.

My heart, my love crescendos in the seasonal transition.

Taking stock, reviewing memories, each day remembering to be grateful, remembering to honor what I do have and what does work in my life.

It takes more than one day a year to truly feel the benefits of life yet I look forward to a time when the weather is cooler and people are closer, allowing us to focus on affirming what one does want and what can be good.

Autumn, my heart jumps while it falls as another year is slips through my fingers, all while feeling the rise of warmth coming in the promise of a new year.

You are my favorite time of year and with it you bring a visual and emotional wonderland of past and present.

Wind down and slow yourself into winter, but let me enjoy your rich colors for just a big longer.

Until we meet again next year, I shall cherish every moment, taking stock internally and externally, correcting my errors and forgiving myself.

Seasons change showing us the phases of life, transitions, life and birth, decline and death. Nothing can outrun these transitions and each season prepares and allows for reflection upon the spring, summer, fall and inevitable winter of life.

Fall, embrace me one last time this year as I prepare for the next.
