AUTUMN MUSINGS

“For these beings, fall is ever the normal season, the only weather, there be no choice beyond. Where do they come from? The dust. Where do they go? The grave. Does blood stir their veins? No: the night wind. What ticks in their head? The worm. What speaks from their mouth? The toad. What sees from their eye? The snake. What hears with their ear? The abyss between the stars. They sift the human storm for souls, eat flesh of reason, fill tombs with sinners. They frenzy forth….Such are the autumn people.”Ray Bradbury

Autumn has come with wonderful colourful changes in nature and with chilly winds blowing down the hill, shaking up in the waves of the ocean, making them foam and the sea dark, wild and icy cold. We are expecting the first hurricanes to arrive in November as per usual, and I have read that it will be the coldest winter in Denmark for 100 years. I am not sure whether that is true, because if it should be compared to last year, we barely had a winter here – just a wet experience with a little frost now and then.

Although not trusting the prognosis, I have still said goodbye to the lush green colours with a promise to see them all next year. Being a person whose favourite season is spring, I cannot wait until the leaves begin to peek out on the branches again, and it is almost sad to see them fall to the ground – even though it is beautiful, because they remind me of small ships that sail through the air.

What is your favourite season?
