Fall: A Poem & Musing

I love the smokey grey of the sky in Fall
The rustling of the leaves
Their shifting colors from dark green to orange lights
The chill within the breeze
I love the scent of fire that moves upon the wind
Longer nights and rain that falls
The touch of woolen clothing, hoodies, and pumpkins

Friends, it is a new season, my favorite season! Autumn or Fall. For some, this is a time of seeming woe. A time when life fades and all things slip into darkness. But just like when we have spent our time working hard and producing a job-well-done, at the end of it, we desire a well-deserved rest with (hopefully) the anticipation for something even greater in the day or days to come.

Autumn is a season of rest. It is the pause in the moment, the beginning of an intermission right before the symphony of life begins again. The current of Fall comes down up Summer with the vibrancy of fire and ice.

Newness is just ahead, brothers and sisters, let us take a pause as we bundle up in the coming stillness and wait as the seeds we’ve planted in the months past germinate in the darkness only to burst forth with greatness and light in the seasons to come!
