it's coming and i stay still

 i stood in the rain for a little too long today. i have decided to stay indoors now. the cast iron pot simmers with garlic and lentils and crusty bread bakes in the oven, oh how i had promised myself no bread till france.  my feet found the warmth of hand knitted socks and a lazy scarf is wrapped around my neck. it  will just be one of the those days,  recharge & quiet. unexpected lines will be read from well written novels of times past. the sounds of a foreign language will play on the viewing machine. tea cups will be poured and sipped and in between the animals will be well kept. today will be me feeling summer closing it's door and autumn singing it's way in.

...Gorgeous.

...Your words are like poetry and the photo is reminiscent of a 19th century painting. Love.

...Blessings :o)

Wonderfully put! I, for one, welcome autumn with open arms. How I love this time of year. Its beauty rivals that of spring's, and just might win, in my humble opinion.

Beautiful, Nadia. Fog, rain, tea, simmering soup and baking bread- perfect for the beginning of autumn.

Such beautiful words... I'm not taking summer's departure quite as well, but I've stopped glaring at each tree I see with yellow or red leaves.

Now reading this, I definitely think it's time to cozy up for fall.

You're speaking my language :) It's so cold today, I'm wrapped up in blanket as I type this.

Beautiful welcoming post..."today will be me feeling summer closing it's door and autumn singing it's way in."

Gently taking leave of summer and a song for autumn.

My eyes are filled with tears, I am so moved by the beauty of your words.
