September Days Are Here!!
I am a story-teller by nature and LOVE descriptive language!! I don't want to just tell you the rosehips are red.....I want to tell you the EXACT shade and intensity.....after all, there are so many different shades of red!!! I want you to actually FEEL, and SEE, and UNDERSTAND, as I do, and I think that is something that artistic people really need to do, don't you? That is why we love color, working with our hands, savoring fragrances, feeling textures, creating, and then SHARING it with others!! And that is why we LOVE BLOGGING!! It allows us to be able to share our thoughts, our handiwork, our ideas and dreams, our pictures, our lives and our stories, in our own descriptive language!!!
So isn't it marvelous then, when we come across something that describes perfectly just what we are feeling, seeing, and experiencing?? This simple poem seemed to pull at my "heartstrings" and I hope it speaks to you as well!!!!
"When the goldenrod is yellow,
And the leaves are turning brown-
Reluctantly the summer goes
In a cloud of thistledown.
When squirrels are harvesting
And the birds in flight appear-
By these autumn signs we know
September days are here." ~Beverly Ashour, September
Wishing you Beautiful September Days, filled with autumn delights~
