Seize the Day

Last of summer’s purple flowers,

Counting down the autumn hours,

Making hay while sun shines on,

Seize the day before they’re gone.

    How beautiful! I can almost feel the angst, as though I were standing beside those lovely purple flowers. God bless you BIG–love, Caddo

      The frost cometh – so no more vines or pretty things for a while. And I never had time today to rub two minutes together to take the last photos of the season – sigh…

      • Caddo Veil says:

        Oh well…Will there be lovely winter photos? There was something else I was going to ask–but now it’s flown out of my head!

      • melodylowes says:

        Oh good – there are more out there than I who lose my ‘train’? 🙂 Yes – there will be more lovely. But I think it is okay to mourn and appreciate the season falling away, too. As long as I perk up again and watch for more beautiful things!

      • Caddo Veil says:

        See, I agree with you about mourning and appreciating what “falls away”–but some folks have been pretty adamant about just being jazzed about Fall. oh well– And, losing the train? Heck, I completely lose the track, Melody!

        I have never actually liked fall that much. As farming folk it always represented so much hard work – fields, gardens, and the end of the barefoot season. (I’m not a fan of wearing socks…) But I do appreciate the beauty, and am trying to seek the good in every season.

      • Caddo Veil says:

        I didn’t like fall because it meant going back to school–way too much stress!! I’m not big on socks, either–it has to be pretty darn cold for me!

    I am feeling this poem . . .doing all we can now, while the weather allows! God bless you and your day!

  4. Why do I sense your being human after all and why does it comforts me? 🙂
