Today was the perfect day
The sun dotted a blueberry sky
Like a big yellow gumdrop
Fluffy marshmallow clouds lay softly
A slight chill hung in the Autumn air
A perfect time for a soul stroll

Half dressed trees beckoned to me
Drawing my feet to the familiar paths
That I have been treading since childhood
A soft solace encompassed me as I
Breathed in the beauty of nature's charms

Crimson leaves dipped in gilded gold
Dillydallied playfully in the breeze
As my thoughts took flight to yesteryear
Spanning across memories of love and loss
Journeys through life that time can't erase

I reflect upon this season of Thanksgiving
The years of love, laughter, family and friends
My plate has been overly full with blessings
My heart remembers the cherished moments
I hold them close bathing my spirit in renewal

As I walk this path of melancholy this year
I pause to think of all I am thankful for
All the precious people, places and things
That define me and color my world beautiful
My heart is brushed happy and I find myself smiling

In that fixed moment of revelation
Heart and soul bared to mother nature's bosom
Standing in the chill of Autumns arms
A brush of warm air softly kisses my forehead
Just like Mama used to do each and every night

~ I Count My Blessings ~

Had time erased our memories of love and loss, many beautiful poems and people, like you Miss Pinky...would be of so little use to anyone.

So many lovely thoughts penned to perfection.

...just bein' Bluesy

Hi pinky gal..i just returned from a visit to Maine where my family lives.  It has always been my "vacationland"  my mother turned 90 this trip and we had quite the birthday party.  It was such meaningful quality time with my 3 sisters as well..we all have a story and personal journeys of lives well lived.  Your poem speaks to me loud and clear. The carpet of leaves and the sun shining brilliantly on the bay...always hard to come home you know.   Thank you for your poem this morning..its a sweet reminder of happy times and a blessing in itself

Pinkperfection,
Them two word hogs said all the good stuff. I whole heartedly agree! Walking down the path with you was a delight. Now I'm craving a pumpkin spice hot chocolate! ~L
