Sometimes, I get so caught up in the daily minutiae of life, in all the little things that must be accomplished, that I forget to stop, pull off to the side of the road, and look….
This morning, I woke up early and saw myself reflected in the morning sunshine in the mirror across from my bed. After doing my morning routine of yoga/pilates/meditation, I pulled on a light jacket and a pair of shoes and walked down the street.
This is what I saw….
Hydrangeas Change Colour
This summer house is all closed up, so naturally, I snuck onto the property to sit by the sea.
Early morning sun streams through fall leaves
The colours of every plant still growing are just incredible….nothing is more beautiful than this motley!
I gazed off up Somes Sound at lobster boats scooting across the water
I skipped some rocks whilst looking around
And stared out at the rocks and grass and seaweed
I gazed down at all the summer cottages wrapped up for winter
Come Monday, all these leaves will be gone!
The other day, I went strolling to a park nearby. At sunset, this is what I saw…
Autumn is a rainbow here
The sun set behind mountains and cliffs
And the sun shone on the bark of birch trees, until it all but disappeared
