autumn benediction

As the trees release their leaves

so we let go of those things we need carry no longer.

 

Go in peace –

into the green and gold, ochre and amber

and crunch of leaves under foot,

your journey bright and pure.


May you find grace in the love of friends, family and community

surprises in the midst of the commonplace

and songs of thanks to fill your heart

 

This day and always –

Amen
