Whiskers

They stand like whiskers, unruly and thick, without uniformity. Their green foliage, then vibrant now past, lay as brown and tan, light and dry soon be next year’s soil. Not a hint of the past, of what it was in color but instead a different form and a different role.

Looking at the bigger picture, we can see the seasons as a chance to step back and be small, and allow the wonder of nature carry us into another opportunity; maybe one we did not expect or one that allows our past, our knowledge, our vibrant life that once was, to be transformed into something new and useful to the whole.

  1. Ooh, they are like thick, unruly whiskers! Love this. And I’m trying to shift my attitudes about this time of year and think more in terms of changing seasons, changing opportunities. Thank you for this lovely post.
