20 August







everywhere i go there are signs....

snippets of conversation overheard at the  fish market

children talking amongst themselves about class lists and teachers.

here and there the sumac leaves are turning orange 

and aspens drop their yellow leaves on the walkway steps

the nights are cooler now and mornings as well. 

I find myself reaching for a sweater while i sip my  tea on the porch.
  
 daybreak is later and the evening twilight settles sooner

as i ramble through the gardens it occurs to me

that no one has mentioned any of this to the cosmos








they just keep on blooming and pay no never mind what-ever to the calendar

  3. comforting isn't it that nature goes on with its seasons. A bit like the waves on the shore, they will keep coming to the shore, no matter what happens in our daily lives. Have a great week, and thank you for stopping by my blog today.

  8. I can't wait for those cooler days you're sharing with us. Here, school begins and the temps still soar to the mid 90s for a while. And the morning temps continue to be in the 70s and 80s for now.

    Beautiful flowers.

  11. I used to have an entire bed of cosmos. I loved it! But eventually filled it with perennials.

  14. So pretty. Yes the flowers never seem to notice the changing of the seasons (until it frosts). So not ready for that yet.

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
