Change


as the days shorten
nature paints all around us
each leaf a sunset

This is in gracious response to One Deep Breath. This week's topic is Change. Change is not an easy thing for me a lot of the time, and yet it is a constant in life. Autumn is a change that's hard to ignore and dislike....until I think of the long, grey winter ahead. I will practice embracing change more...

It is said the only constant in life is change - I guess we have no choice but to embrace it! :-)

Change certainly is constant and without it we might be static beings.
I love your comment on your profile about Bush. I still think that I will wake up and all will be back to normalcy. God help us all 'cause noone else will!
I like your blog.

Love your words to this wonderful photo. Change is difficult sometimes and autumn seems to be the hardest season to flow with.

Beautiful. I love the way your haiku and photo echo the "sunset" of the seasons into winter.

Hey ‘shell

This is just lovely. “ and each leaf a sunset.” You have captured in five simple words why we love sunsets and autumn leaves. The verisimilitude is perfect.
