kinders find magic in the japanese garden
seeing things change right before them.
‘change is a measure of time, and in the autumn, time seems speeded up.
what was, is not and never will be;
what is, is change.’
-edwin way teale
‘and the sun took a step back,
the leaves lulled themselves to sleep,
and autumn was awakened.’
– raquel franco

“jump into the middle of things, get your hands dirty,
fall flat on your face, and then reach for the stars.”
our first snowflakes fall
and from the looks on their faces
i’d say the fall pumpkins
are having a hard time
accepting the arrival of the winter weather
and wish it would all just go away.
“ignoring facts does not make them go away. “
‘now autumn’s fire burns slowly along the woods
and day by day the dead leaves fall and melt.’
tonight will be my visit to the last ann arbor park
one day before my goal of halloween
it will be bittersweet to end this adventure
watch for my story this weekend.
autumn is my time.
i am most radiant and full of energy
when the leaves are falling
there is a ghost of change in the air.
as october begins
the parks and i
change with the season.
