the schools as autumn feelings

fire: the warm, content feeling after eating way too much thanksgiving food

ice: the cautious, numbing feeling on your fingers reminding you winter is on its way

storm: the overcast sky that refuses to bring a dreary feeling but instead, nap-time

myth: the childlike wonder in everyone’s heart watching the leaves change

life: the appreciation for all nature around you, even as it dies for a season

death: the subtly eerie feeling in the dead of a crisp autumn night

balance: accepting the fact that even if autumn is over now, it will all return again eventually
