for autumn leaves
blanketing paths
that I may cut across
ruffling  trying not to step
on the beautiful, still crisp,
crimson leaves.
but the music will soothe me

even the fallen leaves can be soothing - in the final analysis, that's what we are - nice photo, Lorraine...and the words :)

Oh, Lorraine, I loved this! Yes, there's something special about autumn...I love the scents and the sounds. On a horribly humid day like today, I am right there wishing with you :)

Lorraine, Autumn is my favorite time of the year...golden sunlight, Indian summer, perfect temps...I call it Goldilock Weather ~ Just Right!

Thank you so much for offering your heartfelt words. It's so comforting to see how many have taken the time to offer their support and kindness.

October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came -
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.
--George Cooper, "October's Party"

much love...

Nice feel to this one Lorraine. Here on a pleasant sunny day here in N. California, it's hard to think of Autumn just now. it has only seemed like summer in the last few weeks. Weather here has been a bit unpredictable.

Take good care, dear friend! x

P.S I have some little gifts that I bought for you , now I just have to get them in the mail, bear with me!

I think we're all looking to autumn, waiting for summer days to run away quickly (forgetting that part of out lives goes with the hot summer days)....But, we've been told that the heat of summer will stay with us into October, therefore the leaves might dry and fall before blowing into colours...
Weather has talked to the Earth and they both decided to torment us this year...

Kristin Riggs said...

I truly love this one! Autumn is my favorite season...and how we are longing for it these days in my part of the world. Read my last two posts on Soft Spoken and you'll see why!!! :)
Lovely as always, Lorraine!
