The time has come and I must be off. But before I go, I thought I would share some images of Autumn's Splendor from the Plains of Kansas and a bit of poetic prose.
The weather has been SIMPLY PERFECT, which is a very rare occasion. I could not help myself, but spend just little time amidst Nature's beauty, soaking up the sunshine, gazing at the blue skies, listening to the sound of rustling leaves that have begun to fall.
I return in early November with stories to regale about my GRAND Adventure!
"looking across the vast landscape,
watching as each crease is neatly folded flat
I see the wide open spaces, and the expanse of my days
then given a choice with finger outstretched, I point
point to the very center, if ever there was one
proclaiming boldly, "I don't want to live here."
with a voice of innocence...
not really knowing, yet sure all the same
but live here I did for the love of another,
in the middle of the world
with its dapple sun rays, bursting through veins of illuminated leaves
that constantly sway in the swift winds of time."
