Catherine Bussiere: I love today

today is the light of autumn with the heat of summer
the smells of fallen leaves and the sounds of crickets
the dear fly buzzing around my head as if it were July

today I want it all
I want to do nothing and do everything
I want to sit all day and soak it up
I want to hold it so it doesn’t end
I want to make the most of it and harvest and clean up and trim and get ready
but I don’t really
it’s Sunday and it’s indian summer and if I could I would push on pause

I’ll go visit someone today
I’ll go to the garden and find something to make a nice meal
I will throw myself in the pond for one last time
and run to the sauna if I get cold
or lay in the sun
yes, I will lay in the sun

now there’s a plan

  1. I think we had an identical sounding day here Catherine! You certainly expressed the feel of (yesterday-Sunday) as it occured here too. It was w-a-a-a-rm!, like end-of-summer, but was layered with autumn scents /due to the alterations the plants, grasses and trees are going thru.. It is fragrant in a way that evokes so much (atmosphere).. -May i just add also,, that i sure loved seeing that apple displayed in your photo-scape, it sure had a special design; i am glad you shared it,, and everything,,
