Autumn Grandor!

Every year over and over again we come to see the seasons presenting the beginning of new life, the grandeur of the fruitfulness, the changing colours and light shades before we receive a white carpet, having us to escape the wind and cold air, looking for warmth in the house.

Joy Cometh In The Morning

AUTUMN GRANDOR

Out of the house with noisy clamor Sunshine and flowers and colors galore Experiencing joy and giddy laughter Breathing fresh air and so much more Seasons are changing and causing a pause Shifting of gears and temperature loss Rearranging my closet and getting prepared For crisp morning wakeups and frost I’ll celebrate change and embrace its renewing Of memories from past days of life When school days and ball games Fulfilled the expanse free of strife I’ll once again welcome, in great expectation The beauty, the freshness, the glory Amazing sunsets and full moon rising With maple and pine telling the story Of God’s creation in awesome display The wonder and beauty of all Breaking through summer’s doldrums This remarkable, beautiful FALL The picture he’s painted no words can describe Though words will inadequately flow I try to describe the grandeur before me Take a walk in the…

Autumn – by T.E. Hulme

A touch of cold in the Autumn night –
I walked abroad,
And saw the ruddy moon lean over a hedge
Like a red-faced farmer.
I did not stop to speak, but nodded,
And round about were the wistful stars
With white faces like town children.
~ T.E. Hulme

T.E. Hulme in 1912
Ed. note: Written in 1908, ‘Autumn’ by Thomas Ernest Hulme (1883-1917) English aesthetician, philosopher, literary critic, and poet, one of the founders of the Imagist movement and a major 20th-century literary influence.

Hulme posited that post-Renaissance humanism was coming to an end and believed that its view of man as without inherent limitations and imperfections was sentimental and based on false premises. His hatred of romantic optimism, his view of man as limited and absurd, his theology, which emphasized the doctrine of original sin, and his advocacy of a “hard, dry” kind of art and poetry foreshadowed the disillusionment of many writers of the 1920s. He advocated the “geometrical” art of Pablo Picasso and Wyndham Lewis as the potential expression of a new, more disciplined religious outlook. {Encyc Brit.}

Is the harvest time, when man is led
To garner the fruits of sweat and toil
From dear Mother Earth,
the deep rich soil.”…

As long as autumn lasts,….

A season of mighty shades of light and an incredible amount of colours presents itself to have us dream of mysterious things.

Summer or Autumn-time in September or in Lifetime

At the moment I am in the Ardeche-Lozère region enjoying my Summer holiday with long walks but also feeling that at a certain age we have come in the autumn of our life, not so able any more to climb the rocks. One moment, the day before yesterday, we were pleased the climbing cables were already provided on the rocks. But with our 13 year old Sheltie it was not such an easy thing to hold him in one hand using the other to keep me safe close to the steep cliff, facing 400 metres down. Much too dangerous at our age.

Sometimes we love to stay young, and it may be hard to feel we are not able any more to do those things we could do some twenty or forty years ago. We are confronted with autumn in life, no matter we want to stay in the Summer.

Suzette B lets us think about the yearly returning seasons and reflects on the beauty of autumn. For some it might be one of the most attractive colourful seasons of the year. For Lauren Destafano autumn has always been her favourite season, whilst for Suzette B fall has a lot to offer, but she sometimes finds that dull days of fall and the looming days of night (aka winter) tends to give the fall season seemingly less favour than the other seasons.

Suzette B writes:

It champions the journey of life.

It celebrates the color of change.

It announces the bounty of the harvest. It reminds us that life has promise – hope.

No matter how much we would love to resist, we shall have to face that particular moment in our life, before the winter part or end part of our life shall come to us.

Perhaps she has good reason to say:

It symbolizes courage. It takes courage to say “goodbye” to one thing and not know what is to come.

But often it is not so easy to say goodbye to the things one loves and one loves to do. With the seasons of the yearly calendar one knows the Summer will come back? With life, we know there is no way back. The new season is the point of no return.

Though:

Fall is a reminder that one journey has come and gone. Another begins.

All people who have to face the days, after the hands of the clock have gone over half or over 6, I wish happy remembrance days. Taking the courage to come to see the better parts we were lucky to have had, and nobody can take them away. Let it be the point where we can enjoy now a new journey in life with beautiful colours of autumn. The golden leaves of our years of the past.

Like Suzette B I would say:

To new beginnings everyone.
