What makes autumn so special for you?

Is it the return to quiet so you can dream and relax?

Is it the walk in the woods where you can renew Soul?

Is it the smells of harvesting, pickling and drying

Making welcoming home feeling so good?

Is it the early darkness

Bringing all loved ones safely in?

Is it the harvest moon being so full

With the abundance of wheat in the bin?

Is is the light in the window

Welcoming all the travelers to stop and rest?

Is it the call in the night

Of the coyote or the return of the winter song birds?

I wonder, dear heart,

what makes autumn so special

Is it the Soul song we heard?

What makes it feel so right?

What makes this time of year so special for you?

  1. Hello! I realize this is sort of off-topic however I needed to ask.
    Does running a well-established blog like yours take a lot of work?
    I’m completely new to operating a blog but I do write in my diary every day. I’d like to start
    a blog so I can share my personal experience and feelings online.
    Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.
    Appreciate it!
