Sometimes everything has to be enscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you. Sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright, and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart. David Whyte

Gray today and drear
Rain obscures bright colored leaves
Monochrome abides

    Geographically speaking, your today, was my yesterday. East is east and west is west and ne’er the twain shall meet.

    Disappointing, but a tiny preparation for the coming winter. We have had a very warm sunny October. In fact, we need rain rather badly. (But I don’t think anyone’s complaining.)

    The other day was so dark and your haiku reminds me of it.. I want to see more light 🙂 You pen the season of autumn so well in your writing xx

    Thanks, Christy. Autumn and winter skies are the most striking to me.

  5. There have been some gorgeous coloured dawns this week, but on Friday we too had a grey one that washed out the autumn colours.
