It sounds like:
"Knock Knock" Who's there? Orange
"Knock Knock" Who's there? Orange"Knock Knock" Who's there? Orange and Gold.
Red and her friend Yellow
Go ahead and open the door wide. Fling it wide and step outside.
Step outside your busyness, take slow deep breaths and allow yourself to see
with the eyes of your soul.
Autumn is the season of letting go. Some see the dying. Try to see the dormition.
The leaves are not afraid. We needn't be either. Allow the Spirit to come.
Trust that in the end all shall be well
Let's conclude with part of the Autumn Equinox Fire Prayer in Fr. Hay's Planetary Pilgrim:
Autumn fire, orange and yellow sacrament of the sun,
light up the darkness with your dancing.
Your power is seeded in the ripeness
of the fruit and grain of this harvest season.
Great is God, whose heart is the shrine
wherein lives the whole universe;
great is your heart, my Beloved,
greater still is your unceasing love for me.
May my love for You enflame my every word of thanksgiving
to reflect the golden beauty of autumn
that the earth dons once again. Amen.
