Autumn Reminders

I can feel the chill in the air
The sharp sting like lightning shooting through my veins
Shivers deep down into the bone
The smell of leaves falling from their branches
Landing like colorful tarps strewn across the ground preparing to protect it from a harsh winter
The cool orange sun sets early these days
So the stars can shine brighter during longer nights
Entangling feelings of loss and renewal
A much needed cleanse for Earth and life
Seasonal reminders that we need to let go to be able to grow

Through the Smoke

It’s getting harder and harder to see the good in a world filled to the brim with the bad.

This evil flows freely through every crevice and crack, overfilling and overflowing into our lives as sure as sunshine.

When corrupting even the purest of hearts is so easy nowadays, where can we stand to get out of the fire?

How can we continue to walk forward when everything around us is burning to the ground?

I need help looking through the smoke, and learning to live with the heat.

Because this hell on Earth isn’t going away, it’s growing and claiming all that we love as it’s own.
