One Week – Autumn 12 – A moment

Perched on the damp park bench I close my eyes, as if the darkness within will increase the absorption of light into my face. Tilting my features towards the open sky I wish each pore to stretch wide and drink in the glorious sunshine. My shoulders drop as the warmth brings ease to my body and a lightness to my heart. A smile is starting to emerge from beneath my seasonal cantankerous mood. Not even the chill on the breeze that causes the wisps of my fringe to dance can dampen this moment of bliss.

    Beautiful photo. Nothing quite like an Autumn sky and cool, crisp air.

    What Older Mum said!
    I love the feeling of sunlight hitting my face – especially in chillier Autumn when it feels that bit more rejuvenating x

    Wonderful words. There is something special about feeling the sunshine warming you in the autumn or even winter sun, that is different to summertime. It feels more special somehow. I love moments like these.

    What a lovely post – the other comments have summed it up, all I can say is that I agree.
