October Morning

The sun has not risen;

I peer out the Window to see the stars flickering high above in the darkness;

The house is quiet and cool;

My mind wanders in this moment and to the day ahead;

A hike awaits – Somewhere in the Western North Carolina Mountains.

The Fall foliage is beginning to peak and the colours are always so inviting as is the trail.

Walking along a trail with freshly fallen leaves under foot is beautiful and the sound is crisp.  Often I reach down and gather a handful of leaves to make a bouquet.

We walk for miles my husband and me.

Grateful for the day, for our legs that carry us and the daylight that illuminates the way.

October – when the skies clear and become a deep blue and the Autumn colours are bright red, orange and yellow. ~  ©Anita Adams
