Preparation in the Autumn

squirrel eating grass in park march

Meditation in nature

an education from within

enjoying the cool morning

the air is thin


My heart leaps

watching the squirrels prepare

winter is coming

the nest is bare


Nuts and berries

nature has provided a bounty

scurrying to collect them

many squirrels in the county


The leaves are changing

orange, yellow, and red

so much beauty around

the squirrels will be fed


Preparing my soul

for the harvest of the year

reflecting all the blessings

of all that is near


Bountiful food

loving one another

sharing our lives

helping those that suffer


Autumn is coming

there is crispness in the air

my soul is refreshed

the cupboard is no longer bare
