Bounty of Life

Enjoy the beauty of chaos in Fall

Absorb the array of colors before it becomes one

Respect the natural order

Accept the Bounty of Life


Enjoy Nature’s nutrients as they are

Absorb the richness in the Bounty of Life

Respect the cycle of death and life

Accept the transition to grow


Enjoy the beauty that falls before you now

Absorb it’s energy before it sleeps

Respect an end to start anew

Accept the wonders that have yet to be born.
