October 304/365 / by Erika Sneeringer

304 days down and 61 to go -- crazy!  

Since there really are no words to describe just how much I love this month, I'll leave you with a poem I wrote and a few of my favorite pictures from this month.

October

With a sigh of contradiction
I smile at the beauty before me
and I weep at the dreary bitterness that awaits.
Already yearning for what is to be missed.
A fleeting moment flies away in the gust of forever and lonely branches are all that remain.
