The Coming of Fall

The coming of fall
Brings hazy cool mornings, as fog hovers between the mountains 
The feel of soft flannel finding my bare skin
Footprints left among the dew on green grass, reminding me of walks on seashore sands
The sun reflecting off colorful leaves, making them sparkle like jewels hanging in the trees
Overhead, a passing flock of geese squawk saying hello, as they make their way to their winter home
A faint hint of smoke hangs in the air from a nearby fireplace burning against dawns early chill
A Buck deer's rutting cry echoes from somewhere in the distant valley
Gentle breezes stir crispy leaves as they fall around me like giant tree tears
Evening air turns warm touched with the last breath of summer
As the early sunset whispers its golden promise of the coming of fall

    Hi Donna - Thanks for stopping by to read my poetry! Yours is a beautifully worded poem with strong imagery. Favorite line..."Gentle breezes stir crispy leaves as they fall around me like giant tree tears." - Gail

    Thanks for your kind compliments. Sometimes seems the trees just hate to give up their beautiful fall leaves, and seemed like it was crying that day because they were so colorful and it was loosing them. Thanks for noticing. Blessings....

    Thanks so much! All the seasons have a beauty to enjoy if you look for it. You are kind to respond especially when I don't even know what kind of poem that is...just random words I wrote down....do they have a category called random words? Hahahah
