“There is no season when such pleasant and sunny spots may be lighted on, and produce so pleasant an effect on the feelings, as now in October.” ~Nathaniel Hawthorne
“Mindfulness arises when you allow your attention to fall effortlessly on the breathing point like an autumn leaf falling on a lake of still water” ~Amit Ray
Seize the day, for time is passing,
Seize the day, your days are amassing,
Your time to live, and do, and be,
Is now for you a mystery,
To solve each day as it unfolds,
And watch the treasure it beholds.
Now understand your precious time,
Will one day just be over,
And understand the time to live,
Is now, not under clover!
So seize the moment, seize the time,
Seize that precious day,
And fill your life with happiness,
For this is your today!
“There is something incredibly nostalgic and significant about the annual cascade of autumn leaves.” ~Joe L. Wheeler
"How beautiful the leaves grow old. How full of light and color are their last days." ~John Burroughs
in a blaze of glory,
setting trees aflame
in riotous color.
of coming winter.”
~John Mark Green
The morns are meeker than they were,
The nuts are getting brown;
The berry's cheek is plumper,
The rose is out of town.
The maple wears a gayer scarf,
The field a scarlet gown.
Lest I should be old-fashioned,
I'll put a trinket on.
