Once Upon a Time….


Sally Cronin’s poem is stunning, true, and perfect; mother nature herself could not have said it any more beautifully. Thank you so much for sharing and now I will share this brilliant poem.

Time for this week’s response to Colleen’s Tuesday Poetry Challenge 146 and this week we are tasked with finding synonyms for the words Fall and Give.. and I have chosen ‘Drop and Gift’..

Double Etheree – A Celebration

is a time
to celebrate
what has gone before
and what is yet to come.
As gold leaves drop from trees
and roses lose their petals,
the natural world boosts defences
against the harsh winds and frosts of winter.
But, beneath frozen earth new life will stir
as mother nature prepares for spring,
nurturing seeds and unborn young
as she has since time began.
Her wisdom is unmatched,
even when humans
attempt to thwart
her efforts
to gift
