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.
If we allowed our lawns to be blanketed by leaves before the Winter, we let their nutrients cycle back into Mother Earth while offering other species nutrients for survival. It’s messy walking through Nature’s beauty until we take time to recognize why it’s there. A beautiful life goes beyond what we perceive with our eyes and speaks in mysterious ways. Choose to stop and listen to be adorned with the gifts your heart desires.
I’ve been reading articles advising us to not rake leaves and why. I never did understand why a tidy lawn was required, I felt it hid the great beauty that Life offers and disconnects us from its purpose. Here is a link to one of the articles I read: https://www.almanac.com/news/home-health/natural-living/what-do-fall-leaves?trk_msg=F6UNEQKI82N47DDDNV4TB2GVSO&trk_contact=1JIQAUUCVQ33TF20OEGF0ICJMK&trk_module=new&trk_sid=DJ312I6H24GQ21A7ENRPDMFBLC&utm_source=Listrak&utm_medium=Email&utm_term=Raking+Leaves&utm_campaign=Companion+Newsletter&utm_content=10-18-2020
