September in Montana

Yesterday I peeked out
from the downstairs back door
surprised to see the signs
of our changing seasons

Signs of autumn
Sparkled from the plant
That’s hanging over the
Newly installed dry well

Orange leaves among the green
Remind me that summer
Is drawing to a close
It’s been too short

Inside, the sunflowers
from friends, the Conklins,
and Sue Newell’s ladybug card
brighten the table

The warmth of sunshine
And the grasses in the field
Beckoned me outside
To see beyond the yard

These “weeds” have their own kind of beauty
Browns and greens mixed with gold
Certainly spell the coming of fall
Alas, stores already sell Halloween

Our view of the Madison Range
beyond the field is spectacular
The clouds are ever changing
Giving our Big Sky character

We can sit inside here
and look out in amazement every day
At God’s marvelous creation
Never tiring of our Montana wonderland

Thank You, God of All Creation
For the beauty of this earth
Help us to be good caretakers
And never take these gifts for granted.


Thank you for visiting today
Have a Fabulous Friday!
Don’t forget to go out
and marvel at your September beauty, too!

    I wonder if this song was written by someone with Montana in mind? https://youtu.be/AEeHADqj8TU?si=BUT1_iDuYKqZ7Vlk
    “For the beauty of the earth,
    For the glory of the skies,
    For the love which from our birth
    Over and around us lies:
    Lord of all, to you we raise
    This our hymn of grateful praise.

    For the beauty of each hour
    Of the day and of the night,
    Hill and vale, and tree and flow’r,
    Sun and moon, and stars of light:
    Lord of all, to you we raise
    This our hymn of grateful praise.”

  8. Montana is indeed beautiful. I live in Montana also. Breathtaking beauty!
