Autumn Haiku

falling leaves
hide the path
so quietly

--John Bailey

There's something very reassuring to me about autumn. The clear days, the warm colors, the cool nights and the smell of the leaves as they quietly cover the paths and become another layer, another story of a season, lying on the forest floor. I'm reminded 'everything in its time' -- that there are cycles at work in the world bigger than ourselves. And just when we think we're the stars in this drama, autumn comes along and quietly steals the show.
