Don’t you just love Autumn? Ok, the nights are starting to drop in and it is tempting on a dull day to stay indoors, but it is more beneficial to physical and mental health to step outside, just go down the garden if you don’t want to walk, or go to your nearest green space and enjoy all the sights and sounds of nature – music to the soul. I can guarantee you’ll find your mood lifted and also be able to put everyday trials into a truer and better perspective! I’d like to share this poem I wrote just last year which I hope, will one day go into a book… But for now enjoy and allow the words to lift you. Enjoy the special moments of this season and smile little things that bless each day. x
The Golden Leaves
The golden leaves are falling,
The end of the year is nigh.
Stand, listen and feel the trees as they sigh.
It’s time to rest and time to just be.
To be quieter, slower and allow yourself to see
The way ahead, the path to take
To become ever more fully awake
And in tune, in deep connection with all.
Take a ‘leaf’ from the tree – stand tall.
Stand tall, be true and allow yourself to be the true you
In all you think, say and do.
The golden leaves are falling, quietly to the ground,
But even so, the messages from the tress can still be heard and found.
Their energy is slowed, so allow yours to be too.
Stand, be quiet and admire the view.
The view that is this moment, this precious moment of now.
Enjoy it, connect with it and then, give the trees a bow
Of thanks for their healing energy, their wisdom, their lore.
Give thanks for all they are, you are and then…..some more!
