Fall beckons


Fall beckons and yet a few blooms remain
unheeding and unyielding

to the inevitable path of their destiny
and yet
if you listen so softly
you can hear their whispers 


amidst the fallen
soldiers that have gone before them




I wonder ...
if i were to come back
as a tree


would you light upon my waving branches
sweet finch
and comfort me with song 

as my golden forces 
fall
in silence
with
unquestioned
fate.

Have a great week, my friends!

I've been hit or miss lately checking in. My G-ma broke her hip 2 weeks ago this Wed. She is in rehab which is going slowly and she now has some memory issues.
Hugs to you and Kramer and all your fine feathered friends.

Very much my favorite time of year. Although I adore playing ball in summer, the weather of fall is much more to my liking.
