I aspire to a day such as this
When blue meets blue and autumn is barely kicking
When the geese aren’t sure if they’re supposed to stay or go
When a summer-like breeze mixes with a waft of fallen leaves
And Mother Nature spares us from her killing frost
I am inspired on a day such as this
To hop on a bicycle and ride ’til it hurts
To follow a trail littered with leaves and invisible footprints
To breathe in the beauty of what is cheerfully present
And be grateful for a rider’s seasonal blessing
Soon it will expire, the warmth of golden colors
The rain and cool arrives quickly on its heels
The summer-like feel replaced with a memory
The long-sleeved shirts and sweaters call out
And I wonder when a day such as this will come again
A special thanks goes out to Dan Antion at No Facilities for filling in with Stream of Consciousness Saturday for Linda. I’m not sure how he’s juggling his regular posts, Thursday Doors and this as well, but kudos to him for taking care of us lazy bar bums out here.
Sorry/thanks, David, I’ll take a brandy old fashioned.
Stream of Consciousness Saturday is the brainchild of author Linda G. Hill. Every Friday, Linda provides her followers with an inspiring blogger’s prompt. It can be a word or words and sometimes bonus points are involved (my favorite). Linda asks us to write without editing, other than correcting spelling errors.
Just go with the flow.
Like a babbling brook or rain drops. Click HERE if this type of writing floats your boat or helps with your decision-making. Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “inspire/aspire/expire.” Use them in any form you like. Use one, use two or use them all if you want. If you use two, you get bonus points! If you use all three, Cheryl will put your next drink on David’s tab. Enjoy!
