Harvesting Autumn Colors

Tamaracks & golden trees,
The fire-like glory of autumn leaves.

Purple grapes, apples red & gold,
pumpkin patches, sunflowers so bold.

Misty mornings turning brilliant blue.
Rainbows reflecting such glorious hues.

This astonishing earth; the sky above.
Autumn melts my eyes with an edible love.

Ahhhhh-tumn leaves turning are among my most startling of moments, offering a bounty of changing colors that capture my attention with eye-opening astonishment.

I appreciate this season immensely, the vivid imagery, the crisp mornings that invite me to pull on another layer, the sun-drenched afternoons that make me wish for summer to linger a little longer so I can swing in my hammock just one more day.

Autumn can also be a bit exhausting. Between allergies & harvest time, and (this year) the continuing stress of Covid, global warming, and accelerating world change…it’s easy to go into overwhelm.

In my own backyard, there’s a football-field-length fence mostly covered by grapevines, whose seasons I’ve written about several times over the years we have lived here. Harvest Your Blessings is a simple reminder of the abundant wisdom we receive from the grapes. I love to re-read those words every year as I pick, process, and share those juicy morsels.

Soooo >>> because I still often get caught up in over-doing when there is so much to actually DO, my husband and I took ourselves on a road trip to enjoy the autumn colors this month. I captured a few simple moments from our trip in this invigorating Autumn Leaving video.

I invite you to sit with me for a few short moments of treasuring our world, because the true gift of every harvest is in the sharing. (Thank you for receiving a bit of the bounty from my heart.)

May your harvest be full of Good, as you savor every moment.

  1. Dear Sora,

    Synergy. Autumn is my all time favorite season. Sunshine, vivid colors; a celebration of Mother Nature as she blessed humanity with glory and magnificence. The video facilitated my joint you on such a journey both real and surreal. Birdsong blessing senses released by such majesty; blessing heart and soul.

    Thank you so much for sharing. Nice blue boots by the way!

    • Thank you Simon! Appreciate you feeling the synergy and walking with me in this little bit of paradise … and enjoying my garden clogs! (They are actually green, but perhaps they changed colors along with all those falling leaves 😉 Keep loving autumn, and every season. S
