As I sit here listening to the wind whipping around the house, the windows bellowing, and the rain hitting the windowpanes, I smile. This is my favorite time of the year. Fall is coming, berries are ripening, and I get in a nesting mood. I am feel the urge to prepare for the long quiet days of winter.
It hasn't been rainy all day though. In fact, we had a beautiful holiday weekend after DH's busy work week and were even blessed by the longest lasting rainbow I have ever witnessed. I call the months of September and October rainbow season. Some weeks we are lucky enough to see several in a day....but this rainbow was special. It graced the view from my window for over 2 hours.
A loves this time of year as well, and in honor of it, she wrote this poem.
