Ruminating On Rumi

As you start to walk out on the way, the way appears.

Outside

Outside my french doors of my beautiful little garden suite, sits April May June. This is her in early summer. As sun and showers nourished her, she wore the abundance of life with the radiant glory of serrated red and green leaves. Now, as the weather chills and the growing time of summer has past, she is in the autumn of her life this year. Leaves are shrivelling and dying, browning and falling    as her outer radiance withdraws inward to keep roots healthy. It is in a sense a time out that is accepted as it is. It is only us humans who are incredulous of change even though it is the most obvious experience.
