masked in amber
and aspen groves
that spill gold glitter
'tis time of the Turn
when darkness steal the light
be still and listen
the quiet season beckons
July’s full moon, often called the Buck or Thunder moon, rises early over our homestead in the Okanogan Highlands of Washington State.
The full moon lives up to its name with constant thunderstorms that rumble over the highlands every afternoon. And recently we’ve spotted a young buck down by the pond.
Cheers to long summer days and mesmerizing summer nights under the Thunder Moon!
Red, yellow, orange, and gold
September’s colorful foliage fills my soul
awakened by chilly mornings as leaves rustle about
blanketing the forest where new shoots will sprout
this is my season ~ September, October, November
the Autumn of life warmed by a crackling fire’s embers
come, let’s sit for a spell, and tell our favorite stories
taking comfort as September shares her glory
