*Afterthought #44 – Connected and Held

leafAutumn crisps

the sunlit breeze.

Golden maple leaf

sways solo

from a spider’s

single strand.

A reminder—

I am,

we all are,

connected and held.

*Afterthoughts are my blog version of a practice followed in some Quaker meetings. After meeting for worship ends, people continue in silence for a few more minutes during which they’re invited to share thoughts or reflect on the morning’s worship. I’ve adopted the form here for last-day-of-the-month brief reflections on headlines, quotes, books, maybe even bumper stickers.
