Gray Mood Happy Heart

GRAY * white
Reflecting * HUNTING * Gathering
tea time with a friend


The first fruits of the season

and the gentle crackle of the hearth

call me inside from summer's playground

like my mother's gentle call

wafting in the wind

to set aside pro tempore, the alluring


but fleeting colors

of summer.

Because it's time to rake up the memories

get cozy

AND embrace the MOOD


and to gather around the table of reflection



So make a pot of tea

find a quiet corner

capture your fondest memories of summer

and write a poem to someone you love.

Have a splendid autumn week my friends.
