The Dawning of Autumn

The Dawning of Autumn

 

Autumn dawns,
greeting me.

I pause.

Captured by the season change
as I lift my eyes so is my heart.

I stand still.

Immersed in color.
Immersed in light.
Awe fills me.

I ask myself:
what is consuming me?
what is changing in me?
what am I immersed in?

Autumn dawns,
God’s goodness present
filling me with peace,
showing me God’s path now,
awakening me to God’s closeness,
guiding me into new ways.

I ask myself:
where do I need to be a bearer of light?
how do I need to be in this season?
what am I harvesting?

Autumn dawns,
a new season
in creation,
in life,
in me.

I stand still.

Immersed in light.
Immersed in this liminal time.
Divine Love fills me.
