Autumn's Smile

long shadows
golden light
red rushing leaves
what is it about this season that makes one sigh
do we feel a bit of relief from the summers' crazy days filled with all our projects 
running here  ~   running there 
although these days are filled with much work
harvesting the last in the garden, canning, buttoning up
it is a sense of "well done"

Fall is the time for lingering evening dinners
stews and soups
baking bread
evening fires
long walks though the colorful woods

tis a time for reflection

  the year's last 
  loveliest smile 
                   >>. William Cullen Bryant

winter is an etching

spring a watercolor

summer an oil painting 

& autumn a mosaic of them all

                  >>. Stanley Horowitz

new in the Little ZiBagz Shoppe............

how right it is to love flowers 
and the greenery of pines and ivy and hawthorn hedges
they have been with us from the very beginning

>>.Vincent van Gogh

        peace and sunshine to you
