Summer's lease hath all too short a date -Shakespeare

100 acorns

 gathering a harvest of peace

 the light begins to wane

above this rather tiny island

chestnuts and beeches letting loose 

their harvest

 oaken leaves that just begin to curl

goldenrod and yellow asters

 and sumac turning orange

painting the landscape at Marjoram park

when we bring them home

 we lay them on the nature table

a gentle reminder that seasons are circular...

the earth spins

and with it 

trees, and leaves, and seeds, and pods

small boys, maturing young women

and olden people

who lived long ago

in a land without wi-fi.
we light the candles on the dinner table

we share our daily highs and lows

and savor these last few weeks

before school starts....


Hereafter, seed time and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter,

and day and night shall not cease, so long as the earth remaineth.

Genesis 8:22

  1. Your post calms my heart today and makes me think of - "quietness."

    Oh, to turn off the noise and just talk. To sit and enjoy each other's company.

    I came over today on Women with Intention to find your post.

    Thanks for sharing the simple things in life.
    Hope you have a blessed day~

  2. Nice acorns you collected. The green ones are still firm not ripe, but make for a nice deco.
