It's time for a new Poetry Party from Christine at Abbey of the Arts!
Here's my attempt at putting words to her image:
So much happens at once...
So much to learn...
Peace in the flower's slowly nodding head
Joy as leaves turn to flame and gold
Patience as earth cools and lies fallow for spring
Vision to see new life
even as summer's glory fades
into the subtler beauty of winter
The grass withers and the flower fades
