September Grace

The wheel is turning….

A time of transition these September days

how quickly they come.

I look out into the garden

at spent tomato plants and fading flowers

as geese fly in formation

south, away from the impending darkness.

I look at the house plants who have

vacationed outside my backyard, basking

in the summer’s breeze,

“It is time to go home, dear ones,”

I whisper.

My world expands in May,

windows open, porch and backyard

become like vacation spots

where I commune with all that surrounds me.

Now, in this time of year

there is the impulse in me to contract

to go within, to go into a type of dormancy.

Plants return to their winter home in the greenhouse,

decorations and furniture put away until

the tulips, pink, yellow, red,

call us forth out of hibernation.

Is this impulse toward dormancy and down time normal?




And it is different for each person.


My body moves with the rhythm of the seasons

Others move to the rhythm of the sea, or light, or color, or sound.

It is important to find your own rhythm and align with it

And respect the rhythms of other beings

This is the way of harmony and well-being…..

Blessed Be…

    Thank you for your keen observations in word and photo, Ann. So important to remember the power of ebb and flow, especially when the threat of danger and devastation to body, mind and spirit seems imminent. May we some how dig deep and remember “to everything there is a season and a time for every purpose…”
