Walking in the park. Close to the oneness of all creation. Autumn is a gently time for reflection and change. Beauty in bereft trees, leaf carpeted and branches seemingly beckoning in rivers of quiet wind. Come now into nature. Merge with the one life. Leaves, frail as passing years have all fallen away. Down the years laughter, tears, light and shadow form the vast hall of memory.The sky is grey and burdened. The hand of coolness soft on my face. Blades of grass bow yet never break. I am moved to reverence here, in this moment walking past the empty play area. No children here now, in this moment. Dead and broken branches hang from trees. Looking is seeing the vast sky veined with desolation. An architecture of waiting and remembering. Still I wait and will always remember. The leaves drift down in their time. I walk on at one with life here; a time of searching. Gulls faithfully chant across sky vast like the mind. Gathered down the years friends, loved ones and you Mum; “your travelling companion” and “special friend” during years in the shadow of pain. Your body devastated with arthritis, bones cracking like dry twigs. We came here so often. As a child you ran here laughed, cried and lived life as full as the opening years. Memory is vast. Beneath the surface the spaces where all lived memory is stored. I remember you, my special lady as, down the years, you touch me now. Now you are free in the pure created order. Mum, now you are bathed in light and glorying in the higher life. There is only life.
What is called death is a moving on in time and space. It is a living differently and you are at peace, resting and I can be glad.
Autumn in the park. A time to reflect to look within stillness for the true self quiet and at peace. – George Coombs
