knee deep in weeds

notes on a simple life

we take a walk

“I'm an introvert... I love being by myself, love being outdoors, love taking a long walk with my dogs and looking at the trees, flowers, the sky.” 
― Audrey Hepburn


the dog and i take our first real walk around the ponds
he is curious and a bit cautious, looking to me
for security and encourgement

we meet a new friend, taste the first blackberries, 
and i try to take a photo with him on the bench,
but he is having none of that. i let it go
and focus instead on the world around me
in the early morning light


there are signs of fall everywhere, and the morning air
feels a bit different . . .  i wonder how i feel about
autumn coming and the rain that will follow

flowers that are blooming now, will take us into fall
leading the way for the leaves to change
and the air to cool, but until then i take advantage
of the long days; up at daybreak
and in bed by dark. . .  


how was your week?
