How do you make vulnerability an asset?
Can making adjustments in your life support a sense of balance?
What’s feel like to stand steady on one foot?
The setting of the Sun at this time of year takes my breath away. The gold light draped over the land, catching details of trees and leaves, reflecting a shimmer of golden light on windows and buildings; just for a few minutes as it slides into the horizon. Clouds of all shape and design that pulse in turquoise and corals, swathes of fiery reds; cast for a few moments against the blue sky the brilliance of Autumn. Divine abundance.

Vulnerable am I to the fire in the sky
That lays the land to Autumns quest
Life gives herself away for the season’s display
her fireworks calls life to rest
There is no complaint of death’s dark relent
for the glory of the Autumn’s fire
When all too soon winter claims her gloom
after the power of Autumn’s funeral pyre
I gather this season for many reasons
harvesting the fire for my soul
When winter white makes dark the nights
I pull fire up from the cold
