A Pleasant Mood In Autumn

It is amazing to walk in the mountains at this time of the year.
A pleasant melancholy rests over the landscape.
Not a mood that makes you sad, but a nice calm atmosphere after the summer’s guests have returned home.
Maybe it’s the soft light? Or a sudden chill in the air.
Ravens are flying in circles over the sea. Often they are heard chattering and calling.
It is an adventure!

The Cup Of Ocean

What does the cup of ocean hold?
Glory of purple and glint of gold;
Tenderest greens and heavenly blue,
Shot with the sunlight through and through;
Wayward ripples that idly roam.
Tumbling breakers with gallant foam;
Sands and pebbles that chase and slide;
Mystic currents that softly glide;
Mighty spell of the ages old,
This does the cup of ocean hold…
