fall

September 1 is much too early to be admiring fall colours.

“September was a thirty-days long goodbye to summer, to the season that left everybody both happy and weary of the warm, humid weather and the exhausting but thrilling adventures. It didn’t feel like fresh air either, it made me suffocate. It was like the days would be dragging some kind of sickness, one that we knew wouldn’t last, but made us uncomfortable anyway. The atmosphere felt dusty and stifling.”

You are on the right path ~ not a horizon exactly but more of a direction for the New Year.

Inuksuk (Inukshuk)

“The mysterious stone figures known as inuksuit can be found throughout the circumpolar world. Inukshuk, the singular of inuksuit, means “in the likeness of a human” in the Inuit language. They are monuments made of unworked stones that are used by the Inuit for communication and survival. The traditional meaning of the inukshuk is “Someone was here” or “You are on the right path.” [http://www.inukshukgallery.com/inukshuk.html]

New Horizon

nostalgie

heart2

Nostalgia for summers lost 

August on the wane

fall nibbles at its warmth

 

on the radio a haunting melody

of shipwrecks and disasters

behind me hazy outlines

lazy days of beer and sunshine

faded photos,  faces meld as one

on the outskirts of the city

geometry of campus skyline

impersonal space, hard edges, logic

wipe my mind clean

“You can’t hide your true colours as you reach the autumn of your life.” True.

“At no other time (than autumn) does the earth let itself be inhaled in one smell, the ripe earth; in a smell that is in no way inferior to the smell of the sea, bitter where it borders on taste, and more honeysweet where you feel it touching the first sounds. Containing depth within itself, darkness, something of the grave almost.”  ~ Rainer Maria Rilke
