It’s Gathering time

Gathering Time

Gathering Time

As much as I love

summer’s carefree days,

there is nothing

like the feeling of


It’s gathering time.

The sun feels hot

but the air feels crisp.

The insects and animals

seem to know–


my instincts 

pull me

to gather for

the dreary days of


I soak in the warmth of the sun.

Everything looks more

vibrant in color now.

 I will begin my harvest

of special things.

Today’s harvest will be

my memory of this morning,

when my baby grandson

cuddled up close under the covers,

cooing in bed

next to me

as we both

waited for the morning sun

to rise.

Harvest time–

I’m gathering now…
