Summer fades into history
yet one more time
as leaves desiccate
and fall to the ground
Carpeting the earth
with resplendent remains
while heralding in a new
season to be crowned 
A changing kaleidoscope
Delighting our senses
with colors rich and golden
Dead, but alive, in all its splendor
The fragrance of pines
and wood smoke in the air
Give thanks for the season
and for all it does render

3-2-1 Quote Me Challenge

Beckie from Beckie’s Mental Mess has nominated me to participate in the 3-2-1 Quote Me Challenge, which was originated by Rory, AKA A Guy Called Bloke.

The challenge calls for me to thank Beckie (thanks Beckie) and mention Rory. I am also to share two lifestyle quotes with you.

One is a favorite of mine by John Lennon and the author of the other is unknown but I found it to be very accurate.

If anyone is interested in playing this challenge I invite you to find two Lifestyle quotes and share on your blog.

Life Quote

Second Chance

Second Chance

The scent of pine
lingered in the forest
evoking memories
of sweetness
and innocence
Of summers long ago
when love was for the free
and life was for living
Now on this cool morning
catching my breath
I am here again
where it had begun
I cast my gaze
through the trees
and I saw him
Appearing as a silhouette
coming from the mist
Movements slow, deliberate
coming closer
My heart skipped
but I had no qualms
This was the moment
I had been waiting for

Bitter thoughts
and sour words
evoking intense reaction
A tongue lashing
hurling insults
Intimidating exaction
A spoonful of sugar
to sweeten the tart
and acidulous vocabulary
Sugar rushing to the head
Calming the anxious
with honeyed confectionery

Feeling Blue

Feeling Blue

Turquoise sea and azure sky
Shades of nature's blue
Navy clouds
as the sun sinks low
and night brings its hue

Cornflowers and peacocks
Kingfishers too
Blueberries and blue corn
Hyacinth macaws
Hydrangeas kissed with dew

Blue moon in the sky
We both see the same view
Across the miles
Blue is my mood
because I cannot see you
