Day 25: When you come to the end of a perfect day…

Digital Camera

When all the world’s a painting, I leave a space beside me for you, dear friend.  I dream of scrummy, crunchy walks, arm-in-arm through lemon-crackle leaves.  Of chittering over this and that, and even of long, quiet spaces of moments where we are just…. being. 

In tune. To one another… to Glory that reigns as orange and golden canopy skies…  To voices singing, calling, laughing, chattering… and ringing posies of roses round us. To diamond-speckled waters, and lights that gleam off rocks.

Digital Camera

To little boys fishing

and old men dreaming, perhaps praying,

at the edge of rivers punctuated with radiant leafy splashes.

Digital Camera

Digital Camera

To rings that pool wonders at rocky edge in wavery, watery patterns,

Digital Camera

and verdant pastures surely made of lush velveteen.

Digital Camera

To songs of praise welling up within and color, skip dancing,

with intertwining ropes of hope and joy…

Digital Camera

And lyrical words that croon so  softly within.

You are more than enough.   

Day 13: Help me CELEBRATE!

“When you come to the end of a perfect day,
And you sit alone with your thought,
While the chimes ring out with a carol gay,
For the joy that the day has brought,
Do you think what the end of a perfect day
Can mean to tired heart,
When the sun goes down with a flaming ray,
And the dear hearts have to part?
Well, this is the end of a perfect day,
Near the end of a journey, too,
But it leaves a thought that is big and strong,
With a wish that is kind and true.
For mem’ry has painted this perfect day
With colors that never fade,
And we find at the end of a perfect day,
The soul of a friend we’ve made.”

~ A PERFECT DAY (1909),  by Carrie Jacobs-Bond (1862-1946)

I fell in love with this charming and tender, hymn-like song a few years ago when I first heard actor Sterling Holloway sing it with Fred MacMurray and Barbara Stanwyck in the Christmas classic, Remember the Night 

May it flow peace and contentment over you…  🙂

This is day 25 of my fall series – 31 days to An Autumn Harvest of our Words. For these posts, I thought I’d explore a different twist on why our words matter…

Is there a God-established  sowing, reaping and harvesting in our words? 

Especially of His Words, spoken?

    You have written an eloquent prose-poem here, Pam, a praise worthy of the Creator of nature and praise itself. Gorgeous! And your autumns are so much more colorful than ours. Sigh…

    • Thanks, Lynn. I was just trying mostly to use beautiful photos I took Sunday here, plus write something for the 31 days, and this just seemed to flow. This year our Autumn is not nearly as bright as last year… but there are spots like these that are gorgeous. Seems like it is colder here? Maybe that has something to do with the color…. our fall this year has been warmer than most.
