I went out for a walk the other day to enjoy the colors and clear my head. Sitting with a cat on your lap, watching the fire burn, though very pleasant, makes me a bit fuzzy headed.
I bundled up, headed out, and got inspired. Here is my take on the seasons.
For The Leaves
The Spring brought us colors of blossom and bloom,
The beginnings of life, bursting forth, making room.
The summer brought jewel-colored fruits of the vine
Apples for a pie and grapes for some wine.
In Autumn the world became darker and cold,
The youth of the spring has grown up and grown old.
No longer bursting, it no longer glows
It flashes an instant before the storm blows
But just for this moment, the wind holds its peace
And leaves us to contemplate
This lovely release.
I hope you enjoy the Fall!
