Describing Autumn

There are only so many shades of turning leaves, so many berry-stained skies to describe before the hues merge and burn through. Only so many times I can wax poetic on the waxed-wood sheen of horse chestnuts, only so many sun-dappled apple depictions. My lexicon trawls fall's lush colour spectrum hoping to harvest new autumn-rich words.

    Stay away from cliche (as you do here) and autumn will continue to reveal its possibilities. With them, will come the new words you seek. I know you will find them. Your "lexicon" is limitless. Soup mail reply to you.

    I wanted to approach the theme from a slightly different angle margaret; there are only so many times you can write about a season before it becomes, well, a little stale and cliched...I was pondering "how can I make this fresh when it's all been said before?" then a light pinged on in my brain - "THAT'S your angle!"!!
