autumns green

another rainy day calls
come out!”

without  a doubt
i accept the invitation
expecting myriads of color

and am not disappointed
it IS october after all

the brightest, boldest
most energetic
of months

but today there seems  
a reluctance in the woods
to surrender the power  
of green’s


"Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises." ~Pedro Calderon de la Barca

surprised as i was by green today
i know nature will soon give way 
to the yellows, browns, and reds
and we will all be blessed by autumns warmth

for a little while

then winter white
will round the bend
but shortly thereafter rescind
to green

"Nature gives to every time and season some beauties of its own; and from morning to night, as from the cradle to the grave, it is but a succession of changes so gentle and easy that we scarcely mark their progress."   ~Charles Dickens


  1. Terry,
    A few too many days have gone by without my T-fix of beauty and inspiration from you. You never fail to bring a moment of joy into my life.
    How sad I am to hear of Linda's passing but grateful she is no longer struggling.

  2. Hi dear friend. Glad to get your note today. :) And glad you and Linda were acquainted. I love it when friends get to know friends.
