Blessings of Newness

Fall Autumn Window Country Falling Leaves Colorful smiley smilie smileys smilies icon icons emoticon emoticons animated animation animations gif gifs
Autumn leaves falling and drifting as if a slave to the winds
Twirling, spiraling, in every direction, and every which way.
Scattering in piles, landing upon leafless branches and bushes
Slowly attaching from it's place through no choice of it's own.

The cold winds blowing leaves into a running stream of water
Down Down it goes with the stream never to be seen again.
Good bye it seems to say as it's leaf folds over into a wave
Away it goes the beauty of it's colors decorating the stream.

Fall is here, bringing changes that can be seen, and touched
Changes so beautiful, bright, colorful, magnificent, magical.
Changes of unknown mysteries, life changes, soul changes
Season of challenges, uprooting, bareness, transformation.

A time of anticipation, and trusting the creator of the seasons
Just as the trees learns to let go, and bare it's nakedness of self.
This, it must go through, knowing it will take time, and patience
Before it again receives the blessings of newness once more.

I love the fall when the leaves start turning. They are so beautiful just as your poem is beautiful.

I get so excited when I see your name come up on my blogroll. Blessings my dear sistah.

PS Today is mine and my husband's 49th Anniversary. I don't know where the years went. I know I lived them, some good and some not so good, but God always brought us through any of the not so good times. I praise God for a wonderful husband and two beautiful daughters and two marvelous grandchildren. The oldest is in college this year.

Hi Lorie,
Thank you for sharing your poem with us. Autumn is not my favourite season but I am thankful for the beauty it does bring. I am praying that with this new season and the changes that come with it, I will see changes, good changes, in the trials that my family has been plagued with. Take care and enjoy your day, my friend.

That is just gorgeous, Lori. My big wildcat I rescued was sitting in my lap, seeming to like the picture and music. When it stopped, he jumped down. :) A beautiful poem ~ Love you ~

Cathy said...

Your music is very beautiful, as always too, Lori. I hope you are feeling better.
