September frost

 A beautiful frosty September morning on the meadow.

 A refreshing and exhilarating time of year!



 "Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower." - Albert Camus







It doesn’t have to be
the blue iris, it could be
weeds in a vacant lot, or a few
small stones; just
pay attention, then patch
a few words together and don’t try
to make them elaborate, this isn’t
a contest but the doorway
into thanks, and a silence in which
another voice can speak. - See more at: http://peopleforothers.loyolapress.com/2010/09/more-mary-oliver/#sthash.qocQOZLD.dpuf

It doesn’t have to be
the blue iris, it could be
weeds in a vacant lot, or a few
small stones; just
pay attention, then patch

a few words together and don’t try
to make them elaborate, this isn’t
a contest but the doorway

into thanks, and a silence in which
another voice may speak.
