welcoming this new season

On the east coast a new season is upon us
A new chance to try again
A season of rest
And letting go
A renewal of sorts
Shorter days and chiller nights
Bright colors popping up everywhere
Pumpkins and apple pie
The crispness in the air
And fireside gatherings
It a season to give thanks
To celebrate with those you love
To slow down
And embrace each other just a little bit longer
There is surprise and mystery
Love and kindness
There is a new song to be sung
And new opportunities to embrace
Seek out the adventure
Create your very own journey
Go places you have never go before
See things you have yet to see
Be open to the possibility of it all
And welcome in this new season
With a wide and expansive heart
