Gathering Season...

We gather into our arms the purples and gold
Knowing too soon their petals will fold
To dust the avenues of the past
Where autumn’s deeper blues are cast…

We gather into our hearts the music of laughter
Childish voices drift to dim-lit rafters
Where starlight pins to the close of a day
The knowing that soon this too slips away…

We gather into our tears life’s joy and its sorrow
As we hold loved ones near; they may be gone tomorrow
We gather moments of invaluable worth
These are the greatest treasures on earth…



  1. Janet ~ Just lovely. How easily we can take for granted the lovely blooms and moments in our day-to-days. They really do hold invaluable worth. Thanks for sharing :)

  2. Megan, thank-you so much for all your beautiful comments and kind encouragement. I read one of your earlier posts this morning about 'today I took the time' has 'flavored' everything I'm doing today...and what a day it has been:)


Thank you for your visit to this porch. I'd love to hear if or how this post/poem touched you!
