Another story by Kat

I love all seasons. After spending 16 years in Saudi, where it gets hot, hotter, dusty and dustier, I longed for the seasons I grew up with! Don’t get me wrong, I am always amazed and grateful at the beauty God has provided us with, but I still dreamed of the special memories of my childhood. The rolling wheat fields, the Fall leaves of red and gold and the frost covered trees!! These days it is 19 degrees and the trees are covered in a gorgeous dress! A beautiful deep freeze atmosphere is looming! I once again hinted to the lovely Kat of like mercury colliding… …moments of unexpected clarity to work her magic and come up with a lovely story or haiku for this winter photo! She once again provided something amazing! If you haven’t met Kat you should stop over and visit her. She writes amazing short stories, haiku and other thought provoking posts! She is a talented writer and a fantastic friend! Thanks again Kat!!

Weeping Cherry in Autumn

How lovely she is
exposed for the world to see
but i imagine
she weeps for her faded leaves
wind-whipped, tumbling round her feet.

I wonder if she remembers the spring.

  10. I could not agree more. I am a firm believer own the grass not being greener etc.
    I travelled extensively in my younger years and I have to say that I always longed to go home after a while I always did because as the little lady said, “There’s no place like home”.
