Take time in nature
A child sees
something new on autumn leaves-
pauses, thinks, questions.

I close with gratitude for all those who helped create a successful second edition of the Abundant Autumn Gallery. The community of reflective writers has continued to grow since the first Reflect With Me Gallery of Artistic Expression in March 2014. A complete list of participants will appear at the final closing of the Gallery.
Thank you for spending some time reflecting on the beauty of autumn with its radiant colors. I look out the window seeing a monochromatic scene of soft white snowfall and feel the transition of autumn to winter. Nature brings a departure to a season that filled trying times with brilliance and inspiration to continue the walk of life.
For now, I join the Poetry Friday Roundup with this week's host, Michelle Kogan, artist and poet. Michelle's attention to detail is recognized in her post full of peaceful thoughts, delightful illustrations, and hope. Please join me at Michelle's blog site for more poetry goodness.
