Autumns Relent

As Autumn relents to the first Winter snow, her golden leaf blankets are peaked in their glow. A season of color that's nearing her end, now passing the time with her cold Winter friend. The cool flowing waters have frozen and stilled and warm gentle breezes have calmed with a chill. Knowing her place through the seasons of change in the cycle of life the Lord God would arrange. Autumn grows weary as slumber awaits under golden leaf blankets she rests in her fate. Blessed is her sleep as God tucks her away, beckoned to wake on a warm Summer Day. Autumn is flattered when friends call her Fall, her season of thankfulness calls to us all. Like feathers we fall into Gods saving grace, humbling hearts as we seek for His face. With Autumns relent to the first Winter snow and golden leaf blankets are peaked in their glow, pray cold hardened hearts find the warmth of Gods peace as their lifetime of seasons will all too soon cease. - Jeannie Minor

I hope you don't mind me peeking, This is a beautiful write. I'm sure you really don't need verbal confirmation. As you wrote from your heart, your words were beautiful and true. You felt it when you were finished. That's why you posted it. There are many reasons people do not show their appreciation of such beauty and number 1 is egos, 2 jealousy need I go further.

Thank you, Eloisa. I'm glad someone liked it. Sometimes it's really hard to tell. I think it would be great if this site had an anonymous thumbs up or down option when you post if you really want to know if people like your writes. So few seem to take the time to comment.
