Ordinary Time, the Last Sunday of August

sassafras leaves

cool morning breeze
plays a quiet tune thru the windchimes
Sunday morning hymn
***
blue jays
shouting from cedar top to cedar top
Invocation
***
first golden leaves
gently fall to the ground
Sunday morning offertory
***
meadow grasses
golden and heavy with seed
bowing in the morning breeze
Prayers of thanksgiving
***
late summer drought
brings the first color of autumn
sassafras leaves & sheaves of sumac
Benediction
***
