Autumn: a Time for Reflection

"If winter is slumber and spring is birth, 
and summer is life, then autumn rounds out to be reflection.

and the harvest is in
and the perennials are gone.
Mother Earth just closed up the drapes on another year
and it's time to reflect on what's come before."

  4. Yes... that about says it.... autumn rounds out to be reflection.

  5. I love the quote, perfect way to reflect the year. Have a wonderful day:)
