“And every year there is a brief, startling moment   When we pause in the middle of a long walk home and   Suddenly feel something invisible and weightless   Touching our shoulders, sweeping down from the air:   It is the autumn wind pressing against our bodies;   It is the changing light of fall falling on us.”   ―   Edward Hirsch  ,   Wild Gratitude       the strange and haunting time of early fall.

“And every year there is a brief, startling moment 

When we pause in the middle of a long walk home and 

Suddenly feel something invisible and weightless 

Touching our shoulders, sweeping down from the air: 

It is the autumn wind pressing against our bodies; 

It is the changing light of fall falling on us.”
