Autumn’s Dusk

“Autumn…the year’s last, loveliest smile.”  -William Cullent Bryant

The sad smile after love has faded is beautiful nonetheless.

The last rays of the sun through the nearly bare trees in the too early sunset paint the sky, and reminds us as dark gathers of the beauty that was.

The end of days is a time for reflection and appreciation for that which came and went, leaving a lasting impression in our hearts and lives that we carry into the dark night.

The frost on the branches, reflecting the grey light and chill air, still gives pause.
