Autumn begins

Summers soft farewell.
Trees sigh in golden blue light.
Veils edges tarnish.

About greenmackenzie

Hi, I'm Seonaid, and I share my home on the shores of Loch Ness deep in the Scottish Highlands with my husband, my son and a couple of dogs. I love art which is here now and gone food and nature...but also have a passion for vintage and the ancient past! Nature is my favourite muse, with her wild ever shifting seasons. I have been using and teaching mindfulness and relaxation for over 12 years, and have yet to become any sort of expert :-) I'm a Psychotherapist and Cancer Support Specialist in Maggies Highlands

    If I could put my foot in the door and stop it, I would! The colour is lovely but the wind is currently tearing them off and battering them. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I know Jo, I walked this evening in the woods and the wind was rustling and sweeping through the tree tops and the air was filled with swirling leaves…..magical. There was a lovely thick carpet of crisp dry leaves underfoot ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Thanks again for bringing my attentions back to what matter. As a previous comment of mine may have suggested, it’s been a difficult time and we got word last evening that an event we have been anticipating did, at last, occur. [I am sure, given your profession, you can guess … close cousin.] The next few days promise to be difficult. As long as I can keep the bonnie skies of Scotland in mind it’ll be OK. D PS: Sorry to be a downer … but, as I have been known to say, life is an oscillator.

    • I’m sorry to hear about your cousin David. Death always leaves such a gaping hole, as we move through loss. Nature can be such a salve when we feel this pain, she continues onwards in endless cycles of death and birth, soothing in her eternal rhythm. And her beauty of course lifts our hearts.

    Beautiful! Autumn lasted but a brief time here – Old man winter approaches . Your haiku perfect.

    • Thank you, and today winter swept her cold breath into the Scottish air. It was ten degrees colder today, and this evening a wild wintery wind was sweeping through the woods, plucking the trees.

    A lovely Haiku in its traditional sense and perfect with your photo. I fear you’re right, autumn arrived today. When I went for my lunchtime stroll it was a couple of degrees colder then walking to work this morning.

    • I noticed that too today, although it’s still lovely and bright the air is much cooler, and I heard the geese honking overhead. A sure sign winters breath is on its way ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Here in New England, the days have been in the mid 60’s and the nights are dropping to the mid 30’s. The days are good for doing fall chores. ๐Ÿ™‚

Let me know your thoughts on my post...I love feedback :-)
