Seasonal blessing

from w
It is so cold this week, really getting into winter and the leaves are red and brown and falling. I picked up some leaves at the Barwon Edge cafe garden. Is this a maple leaf? Then I found some lines I penned some time ago.

Seasonal blessing

When spring buds gently appear
may new forms surprise you
with their unexpected breath.

When summer flowers open out
and wave their coloured flags
may you have a discerning eye

When autumn leaves drift softly
may their maps of silver lines
grace your footsteps.

When winter’s chill sweeps under foot
may we all be reminded of blue skin
and that bones are brittle.
