Winter is finally here. The trees are dancing with joy on this exuberant windy winter day. The leaves are dancing across the road like ecstatic ballerinas in wild abandon. Mother nature has put her hand to broom sweeping her fall leaves to the earth floor to warm her Terra Firma soul and feed the hungry roots below. Little squirrels are scurrying and racing around like turbo charged fur balls. What a beautiful chilly day.
My apologies to those who have started following this blog. I am still learning how to use WordPress and its taken me some time to figure out how to post and upload pictures and so on. Thank you so much to all those kindred spirits who have elected to follow this blog and who have made comments. Blessings to you all.
On trade winds of time they travel by light
Their voices float on sound-lit beams
They fly just past our muted sight
On prism blessed transparent wings
A voice as soft as a fledgling dove
Breath as sweet as an angels love.
If sought with mortal eyes
They are masters of disguise
And forever will they elude
For only with the heart and soul
May the fairy world be viewed.
Once you’ve seen the fairy realm
You’ll never disbelieve
The stories told in ancient times
Of kingdoms once perceived.
Be faithful to the mighty oak
For there in lies the portal
Most grand and wise of ancient trees
A hope for every mortal
So sad for those who can not see
A life of toil and fears
The magic warmth of fairy lights
Shall never dry their tears
On the day when realms collide
We’ll see a new sunrise
And realities unseen to us
Will appear before our eyes
Blessings to all on this day of the Autumn Equinox. Nature, always in perfect balance, will continue to delight us with a show of warm colors to soften the chilly nights and shortened days as she continues her dance toward the Winter Solstice. She is turning inward for a bit of reflective time. But don’t be fooled, she is ever alive and her work has only gone underground.
In the sublime beauty and perfection that we observe in nature, are found traces of the true sense of Life. Perfection, brilliant symmetry, colorful and vibrant! How muted our sense and how dim our view has become. At this time of year, as the leaves begin falling, let us remember the divinity within ourselves and all of nature. In the beauty of holiness shall each leaf charm its color wheel.
Honey the cat is bringing fallen leaves into the house. Oak and Mulberry. Autumn is in the air. Seems too early to find golden yellow leaves on the ground. But the sap is retreating back into the tree trunk and maybe even down to the roots, who knows? I picture subterranean nature spirits waiting for its arrival each autumn. They have a huge tree sap festival and make elfin beer with it.
Sorry I’m new to WordPress still learning how to use the tools at hand.
Nature pics will be forthcoming.
