Being ready for the shift…

The shift into autumn is the most dramatic of all the seasonal transitions.

What we’ve come to expect in colour, texture, and even shape gets upended.

This is new territory.


Are we ready,
I mean, truly prepared
for what comes next?

Probably not,
and that’s
no bad thing…
we might not go there
if we knew.

On the other hand,  
what an adventure
of amazing
at each step.

Let’s go.

Pause. See differently. Re-story 🌿
