THE BLUSTERY WEATHER this weekend put me in a mood to display my plastic Halloween pumpkin. Each year I notice a wickedness behind its carved out grin. Autumn has definitely hit its stride in southwest BC.
The hardy chrysanthemums or mums unfurled from their summer's sleep.
My windsock swam the windy waves, trying to escape its strings.
The breeze ripped leaves from trees during my walk … some were in the prime of life.
At Kwomais Point Park the bay was agitated and restless.
Dry leaves were swept into small bundles by a fence in the park.
The bench was empty ...
of the usual onlookers.
The clouds were beautifully unfettered and free.
When I repeated my walk later that evening, I found sunset gold piercing the gray shaded sky. Although fall is my favorite time of year, it does contain rage within its vivid crispness and silver linings. The menacing weather reminded me of anger and how it nestles in the season of pumpkins and smiles.
