A Familiar Kind of Chaos

Report Story

There can be such beauty in transformation

The moments tick down to the autumn equinox

Our bodies feel the change in the air

A little crisper, a little cooler

Humidity deflates


A red leaf appears

Where there once was green

Hillsides brushed by a divine painter

The autumn harvest fills our bowls and bellies

Fruits of the summer begin to dwindle

The squirrels scurry endlessly

Flowers close and wilt


Darkness creeps in

Finding us sooner as days pass

The world readies itself for a slower pace

Every living thing starts to move inward towards source

We reach for closeness with one another

Animals ready their homey nests

Plants reclaim ground
