The air has shifted

a refreshing coolness

time to take note

feel the change

an invitation

In this season

deep color schemes of leaves

warm morning skyscapes

busy harvesting squirrels

focused bird formations

an invitation


your invitation

like an embrace

surrounds me with goodness

causes me to ponder

awakens me to moments

to be present

to appreciate

to dwell

to breathe it all in.

The goodness of God meeting me.

For Mom and For Carol
