Telling It

A   L   O   H   A  !

 In Autumn I remember being
 a kid back in the old neighborhood;
Riding my bicycle 
through the quiet streets.
Sounds of Nature: 
 Winds, Birds, Leaves, a Stream
by the whoosh of a lone car,
 or purr of propeller plane.

 How I longed to grow elsewhere
to clink glasses with bright people
in tall, bright cities.

 But this Autumn I Remember and Long
to pass again those quiet empty streets 
late in Afternoon,
past houses of families I know
while a thousand leaves Tambourine at once.

 A crow caws.

Wind crescendos like an important Becoming
heralded by moving, grand cloud shadows
all somehow felt inside. 

I would like to be that little person again
long enough to tell:
"Don't worry.
 Enjoy, Savor.
Don't miss a precious flavor
of your perfect Days.


Thank YOU
for Sharing these moments
of Friendship

I never wanted to live in a place with bright lights and the clink of glasses and the constant murmur of people. I have lived in such places. I'm glad now for my dark little road and my backyard full of trees, birds, squirrels, and fallen leaves.

If only our younger selves were better listeners...
I am a fan of the quiet places myself. Always.

I know what you are saying, quite streets are very relaxing and a slower world is something I often long for.

First thing the Husband and I did when we moved here to my growing up place was to buy clunky cruiser bikes. I still love riding down the streets full of autumn leaves.
