Solstice Saturday Poem Meme: Farewell and Hello

It is the summer's great last heat,

It is the fall's first chill: They meet.

Sarah Morgan Bryan Piatt

As Summer bids farewell, puts on her sweater and kisses Autumn loving "Salut."on her way out the door, what are you saying farewell and hello to this season?

chilly morning that Fall arrived...

Farewell to: Stacks of novels to read, sundresses, going sock-less, sunblock, swimming in Grams pool, trying to grow bed lettuce and bottomless glasses of un-sweet lemon iced tea.

Hello to: Stacks of text books to read, Sweaters, jeans, Merrell boots (with long colorful socks), Milk and honey lotion, long hikes in fallen leaves, hot lentil soup for lunch and pots of rich-bold-coffee-with-honey or Earl Grey of course.

Happy Fall Solstice! How about you? What transitions do you begin to make as you reach for your comfy fall sweater?

Sleeping with Bread returns?

Every Monday a blogging community (including yours truly) used to share in a meme called Sleeping with Bread. This meme centered on the following prompts based on the book "Sleeping with Bread".


You can phrase the question in any of the following ways:

For what am I most grateful? Least grateful?

When did I give and receive the most love? The least love?

When did I feel most alive? Most drained of life?

When did I have the greatest sense of belonging? Least sense of belonging?

When was I most free? Least free?

When was I most creative? Least creative?

When did I feel most connected? Least connected?

When did I feel most fully myself? Least myself?

When did I feel most whole? Most fragmented?

The idea went like this - 
Choose a question.
Post a response to the question.
Comment on at least one other person's post.
Share some life, by sharing some bread.

I've missed this blogging community and just wonder if there are any Bread bloggers out there that would like to start baking again? Let me know if you are interested in posting on Mondays to kick off your week or Fridays to wrap it up.

Peace and good bread.
