    I think that every year every season has at least one day that is the perfect icon of that season. Yesterday was the perfect Autumnal day. I spent some time out side just drinking it in and feeling the rhythm of the natural world around me. This poem came to me and I wanted to share it with everyone and in doing so share the beauty of the day.

    Autumn is the time when
    Jays take over the barn roof
    And telephone pole tops
    With meadow birds gone
    They can push and bully
    And ignore all the polite rules
    The other birds enforce

    Autumn is the time when
    The pastures turn green
    With the first rainís storm
    Making it possible for the
    Tender weeds to sprout
    In gopher hole mountains

    Autumn is the time when
    Weary orchard grasses
    Lay down in surrender
    To deer paths and boots
    While apples shine in the trees
    Ruby and amber jewels

    Autumn is the time when
    Blue sky turns hazy with
    Left over smoke from a stove
    Revived and burning after
    Itís long summer sleep.

    Autumn is the time when
    Heavy blankets come out
    Of their hiding places
    Trunks and chests plundered
    For their warm treasures
    While comforters delight
    In being needed again

    Autumn is the time when
    The earth longs for
    A winterís nap and the easy
    Slumber of December.

    wild orchard, haunt of deer and raccoon, all you can eat buffet for the black bears

    I live on the southern Oregon coast....in summer all the grasses turn brown and in winter, with the rains, turn green again...hence our upside down landscape...bare branches, green grass....
