Sneaky Peek : Autumn Light

Home

Here is a day,

dawn to dark,

a string of moments small enough to

ignore or notice,

a stretch of time

between awakening

and sleep to be

savored, or brushed

aside in the rush

to some distant

destination. Here

is a day, different

from any other,

with its own flavor

to be tasted. The

golden glow just

before the sun

rose held such

promises as I

knew must be kept –

knew beyond even

the nagging whisper

of doubt were true –

that this very day

the whole perfection

of the universe can

be inhaled like the

scent of fallen leaves,

the heady fragrance

of trees returning what

was never theirs to keep.

This poem was shared in my yoga class on Saturday morning and I thought it was so perfect for this time of year.  I love the soft light of these Autumn days and the vibrancy of orange leaves that cling on so delicately to their homes before drifting to the ground.  Xx
