the ball
left in the yard
after a time of play.
left out amongst the
leaves that now cover the ground.
the hoop will see play again...
probably not until next spring.
the outdoor sports will soon change to indoor ones.
the voices become quieter
right along with the days.
as we retreat inside.
to the comfort and warmth of our homes.
oh i know...
there are many days of nice weather coming.
but yet,
we still prepare.
that's what we do.
welcome to coffee hour.
welcome to this Sunday morning.
just BE.

It is indeed what we do! It is gray, chilly and rainy here in Seattle today, but I have a stack of books and there's always blogging. Great post for the day and I love your photos as always, Robin! Have a great week!

It is what we do...we prepare, even though in truth we can't predict all that lies ahead...but there is a comfort in the act of preparation.
