Be joyful even though you have considered all the facts...practice resurrection. -Wendell Berry

if just for now

russet, burnt umber, raw sienna, bittersweet, fawn and plain brown mark the shift.
leaden grays and soft whites create the contours between mountains and snow squalls.
drifts of the last fallen oak leaves settle into the tired lawn.
woodsmoke curls from the chimney into the bare birches.
pin points of barn lights fend off an early nightfall.

these gentle comforts are here.
breathing in and breathing out.
being present.
creating peace in the moment.
if just for now.
