Some mornings we awaken
in a somewhat tranquil state
not seeing the Sun yet
and question arising

The cool temperature of Autumn
settling in all around us
with heavy dew on the grass
and branches becoming barren

Beaches remaining untouched
except for the lack of tourists
who now are left with memories
of their escapades in the sand

Yet new sensations of color
begin to lift our hearts
as we move into patterns
that are more reflective

As we begin to settle ourselves
gathering many resources
for the journey through Winter
which grounds us all once again
