Nature’s seasons don’t change in one fell swoop. Instead they keep us tottering a while on the edge of that which comes next. And so it is with autumn! Inch by inch and day by day she proffers more signs of her coming. Acorns are dropping from the oaks, the squirrels quickly snap up the nutty little treasures, a random smattering of leaves are changing colors, and the days are growing shorter and shorter.
The light this time of year,
eclipses summer light by far.
An eerie feeling is in the air,
as we feel what great artist’s share.
They go there for the light.
They go there for the color.
They go there for the sight,
of the Sun dancing on the water.
And we come too, to catch the sight,
of dust floating in the light.
Slanting beams through cracks and seams,
lazy days in and out of dreams.
A time for calm and reflection.
A time to study light’s deflection.
~Excerpted lines from a poem
by Ronald W. Hull
Light in a messenger’s eyes brings joy to the heart, and good news gives health to the bones. ~Proverbs 15:30 ✝
