Farewell Summer

The waning days of Summer struggle now, no longer able to deny
that the clear, crisp days of Autumn are soon to arrive.
It does not mean that things stop.

Quite the contrary.


The process just changes.

You may have to look more closely to see them. That's all.


There are words in a song that articulate this very well;
"Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end."
Goodbye, Summer.
Welcome, Autumn.

Beautiful. This change is the detail of our lives, part and parcel of the manifold we become. Few of us end where once we had set out, but there are some things sure: seasons, foremost of them.
