BEAUTIFUL FALL

Becoming attuned to autumn.
Evenings no longer taking a stretch.
Aware of a darker veil at morning.
Ushered in by autumn's breath.
The low light at evening is softer.
I meander winding woodland paths.
Fluttering leaves of beautiful browns
Under footfall give us laughter as we
Lift armfuls then let them scatter.

Fall is a time of harvest.
And preparing for dark days to come.
Light the fire and let's all gather.
Lingering long after that moon has shone.

I can feel the crisp fresh wind of autumn Jean. A lovely winning acrostic! I love how the vines growing on the buildings turn red. Fond memories of autumn in Ireland. Congratulations Jean. : )

The autumn colours always make me want to get my knitting out Connie. Unfortunately, my new washing machine made small work of my last woolen masterpiece.
