A Sentiment

God knew what He was doing when He sent a gentle breeze and brought a lovely butterfly to set my heart at ease. The happiness of your friendship and the gentleness of your words have touched my life in special ways and now I feel assured. Thank you for your loyalty and for reading everyday. I only hope you find things to make a happy day.

The End of a Season by Balisha

We are just about to go into another season. A transition period is upon us. I find that blogging is in a transition period right now...we are still here with summer on one hand and fall on the other. What do we post about.....summer meals and activities or fall foods and festivals? I can't seem to relate to pumpkins and cider just yet...although I have put my white shoes away :) What do I post about? Maybe a poem that tells what's going on in my old gray head would be appropriate for today.

The End of a Season by Balisha

It's the end of a season.. our summer is going..
Fall's in the wings and winds are a blowing
What should I do when I turn off the air..
Clean up the house and give it some care.
The dust that just settled on tables of wood..
Some polish will shine and make them look good.
The closets I'll organize and make them look neat..
Kitchen cupboards I'll tidy.. while sitting  high on my seat.
My mind will come next...I need a clear head..
When I come to this desk...after leaving my bed.
A post for the season will come to me now..
I'll leave summer behind and now I know how.
I'll take a quick walk round my neighborhood small..
Looking for fall ....I'll give it my all.
What will I see as I look for a reason..
To post on my blog for a very new season.
Pumpkins and scarecrows and mums of all colors..
Nut breads and baked goods... maybe even a cruller.
The wind in the trees ...I might need a sweater..
Shorts will be gone...jeans will be better.
A fire in the fireplace to ward off the chill..
Afghans and quilts will now fit the bill.
Thinking of things to tell in my post..
This season of fall is one I love most.
So, get ready for reading about all things cozy..
My life is a changing...and everything's rosy.
So come here tomorrow for a post about fall..
My fingers are tapping a post for you all.

Your poems are always good and descriptive. Like the reflection too.
