fall, leaves

time of the season

The sky was gray, almost white. Dismal and perfect at the same time. The air was cool and chilly, and the birds were noisy, busy doing whatever birds do in the afternoon. Fluttering around in the bushes now, not high in the trees like they were in the summer.

Every bit of my surroundings shouted (very quietly) ‘late November’.

nature, raindrops, water droplets

hush


It rained the night before, the morning sun was bright, and the humidity was so high it probably should have rained. A few inches away. A few feet away. Beyond.

I was glad I decided to head out early that muggy morning.

Hush ….

catch the wind, music, summer rain

when rain has hung the leaves with tears

When rain has
hung the leaves with tears,
I want you near
to kill my fears,
to help me to leave all my blues behind
.
For standin’
in your heart is where
I want to be
and long to be.
Ah, but I may as well try and catch the win

Just a note …
Beginning this week, I will post less often. I want to spend more time outside, and I’ve got a couple of projects I want to focus on. To be clear, I don’t have a WIP … I’m not the publishing type. But I’m trying to collect and organize what I’ve written so I have a way to preserve what’s important to me in a good quality printed version.
