Porch #60 * Autumn Vignettes

your go-to weekend companion
discover a fresh perspective
get unstuck
embrace community
grow your faith in Christ
share your story

the front door is just for decoration

we always make our way into the house
across the paved patio blocks
up the wide brick step
& then through the kitchen door

autumn's beauties arranged 'just so'
give us a grand entrance

we usually track sand in with us
& there's not really a good place
to toss our shoes

that's the way it is


summer morphs very slowly
into autumn by the sea

dried flowers & berries & leaves
mingle freely with 
fresh snipped greenery
& little white pumpkins

a huge vintage bottle
corralling the elusive sea glass
knows that she's the star of the show

of course


this little faux sweetheart
wears my favorite color as she
hangs out with vintage books
bound in hues of blue 

a little butter dish
overflowing with sea glass
brings a bit of bling to the party

i smile every time I pass by
this little simple, calming vignette

welcome, dear autumn
i'm so glad you've come once again

you always were my favorite season

Thank you for grace.

The Lord bless you

and keep you;
