Autumn...the hush before Winter. ~French Proverb
I am retreating into the hush of the season.

Seawashed Sundays

In the secret places of the cliffs...

"There is a time for everything...
a time to scatter stones, and a  time to gather them." Ecclesiastes 3

"All rivers go to the sea, yet never does the sea become full." Ecclesiastes 1

"Be still like a mountain and flow like a great river." Tao Tzu

I walk along the coastal cliffs in thick fog gathering stones.  Seashells go into pockets as treasure.  Then through the trees to find dried leaves and weathered branches.  All to be scattered here and there throughout our sea cottage.  It is a time to gather.  To be still and to flow.

Sea Tidings,

Days of Autumn rain

these days of Autumn rain are beautiful as days can be...

"My sorrow, when she's here with me, thinks these dark days of autumn rain are beautiful as days can be; she loves the bare, the withered tree; she walks the sodden pasture lane." ~Robert Frost

Rain darkening the soil underfoot
fragrance rising from the dampened earth...

days are beautiful as can be.

Sea Tidings,

Autumn Hush

"Autumn is the hush before Winter." ~French Proverb

"Autumn bowed to place a beautiful crown on the Queen of morning, and her velvet robes sway merrily in the chilly breeze." ~Terri Guillonnels

Autumn fills my bones with a certain mood,
like the dark of the forest
 or a misty meadow path.
It's a longing, a yearning for something deep,
 As if all the other seasons lead to her.

So I wait for her, Her shelter
where I can lay my soul down into 
amber mystery and wake with 
golden oil in my lamp.
~Kerrie Sanderson
