Stirring the porridge on the wood stove I think back to the beginning of May
when the full moon was out.
There was a warmth in the air, moisture too.
That's what caused the fabulous rainbow ring around the moon.
I scurried up the hill to the west in the early morning
The light shining on this web was just like the ring around the moon the night before.
I was just in time to catch that same full moon going down behind the farmland.
The mist lifted to reveal bright autumn foliage on the liquid amber trees.
By afternoon the sun's heat tricked us all into thinking that summer had never left.
The bugs came out in their masses, great feasts for the birds!
The evening sun slid slowly out of sight leaving us bathed in it's warm glow.
Fast forward a week or so and things are changing fast.
The wind whooshes through the trees and leaves are defenseless,
falling falling falling....
A chill fills the air, summer's really gone. Winter's not here yet,
but from the feel of that bite in the wind, it won't be long.
It's comforting to think that whatever the season,
wherever we are,
that same moon shine's down on all of us.
