unfolding the day


September 23 - September 27 Week 31/72


at dawn

the great blue heron shared

lessons of leaning into the day

greeting it with the patience

of a woolly bear slowly setting out

seeking safe haven from the cold months to come


by midday

necklaces of goldenrod blooms draped about the yard

add a colorful garnish to bouquets of white asters

and the fading flower spikes of sacred basil

golden gems of color that will soon be secreted away

beneath a cloak of fallen leaves


in the still of the night

the Big Dipper provides comfort in

it's consistency as it pours encouragement

out onto the wings of migrating geese

flying unseen in the darkness while calling

softly to each other of the journey ahead
