The Seasons of Life

As the inspiring colors of Appalachian autumn drift into etchings of cut-glass frost on winters windows, I am overtaken by a nostalgia deep in my soul. Here, I recall the days of  immense joy and unbearable sorrow that life has brought to me.

I think of the soft breath of my newborn child, the harsh emptiness of my mothers tombstone, the giggles of kids in Halloween costumes, a look of sheer delight upon the discovery of a hidden Easter egg, of how quickly time slips by, leaving us breathless.

And winter will bring another blank page, yet to be filled. Yesterday, today, tomorrow…life.

    Your first sentence draws one not only into a different world, but a different mood, a different pace. Some melancholy, but also a touch of serenity. Beautiful.
    And I love the etchings of cut glass frost.
