Thursday 2 August 2012: Autumn
"It was a cool, July, and it was dusk.
The gentle winds that blew,
brushed the Autumn of your hair.
And a mist, as like in Autumn, touch
your face, as I stood still.
I could not help but wonder, as in Autumn,
are the bees yet in their hive? Snuggled
closely, in their Autumn winter bed?
An Autumn sun, hid behind the clouds above.
It knew not of this July, only of Autumn, in the air.
It knew of flowers drooping, their brightness,
now fading and curled. It knew of falling leaves,
and colors still so bright. A lone tree against a colored
sky, seemed naked in this July. With all of
this, and some to go, it must be Autumn...Autumn...
Autumn, for this I know."
We have four strong seasons in Finland and I'm glad about it. Every season reminds me about the necessity of progress and changes. This morning there was a strong sense of autumn in the air. This autumn might bring some great changes; maybe moving to another city, maybe doing some new things, maybe exciting hobbies. We'll see - I'll report!
Happy August - Happy Autumn! :)
