A New Leaf

Ponderings in Changing Seasons

October Sky


Sparkling, scintillating, actually … azure Sky, seeming to woo me into its depths.  That blue, that clarity spreads infinitely across the expanse above this boundaried earth.  It speaks to my heart every time it comes around.  “Heart, pay attention!” “Heart, see my glory!”  “Heart, there is this now happening, this now shifting of the Seasons you cannot stop nor slow.”

A yearning comes with Autumn.  The mournful tones of the piano keys in “Autumn Leaves” says it well.  It makes me want to bravely roam;  It makes me want to cozily linger.  October Sky heralds the coming majesty of the trees which will exclaim “Look at me! Look at me!”  And October Sky retreats to become the backdrop to the fireworks of the ignited leaves of the trees.  One last glorious display of their presence before they fall to become one with the earth.

It is my Autumn now.  I boldly enter this new Season of my life with fresh clarity and resolution.  I am smitten by Beauty.  I am exhilarated by the Season.  I, myself, am ignited, words kindled by the fire in my heart soon to burst forth into flames of encouragement and inspiration.  Like the broad canvas of the sky, my hopes reach to heights above.
