Autumn is ….

A tang filling the air;

A haze shrouding the peaks;

A beam of sunlight igniting leaves to flaming glory;

Pumpkins send ing their cheery color through farms and porches;

The carpet under trees that lose their leaves becoming a coat of many colors for the earth.


My mind turning to memories of home, friends, of love.

And gathering the warmth of sweaters, the hearth and love around me.

Autumn is a cozy season when the earth slows to gather its juices

For the rejuvenation of my spirit and then spring.
