Autumn Poem….


The chilling rains

Have blasted leaves

From black-barked trees.

Too soon this happened

Thinking there would be time.

Time to marvel

At Nature’s robust palette,

To fill the eyes and senses

With ethereal beauty

That no man’s palette can challenge.

But like most of life

We are behind

And lose out to clockwork

Not of our making.

    thank you, Petru.. I begged my husband for weeks to put those blankets away, and he didn’t… shit happens but usually aided by our own lives. As for speedy recovery> I wish. I have to learn how to walk, etc…. all over again. This is going to take time and a lot of energy from here. Thank you, Petru. xox

    I’m untrigued why you spent the last six months avoiding breaking your legs? I’d imagine it’s a lifetime thing to try and avoid any kind if accident!

    Glad to hear the hubby is doing his thing!

    Because in Feb. I had my gallbladder out. Recovery was 5 months….and it was horrible. I was very careful where I ;placed my big feet and then,,,Bingo!

    Oh right! Not having fun at all are you? Hang in there. Use the time to be nicer to yourself than you’ve ever been. Many good wishes your way. An opportunity to practice patience – what I have to do but for different reasons. – don’t ask.
