Late Fall Beckons

Trees hear the wild whisper of the winds Whispering songs Mother nature sings Hibernation songs are heard all around Barren trees weep as leaves touch ground A blue jay squawks perched upon the branch Vibrant blue feathers loudly sing and dance Calling his mate to join him in their nest As frigid winds murmur their need to rest The ground is sleepy as slumber has begun Frosty leaves blanket and shelter the sun Chipmunks now burrowed deep below With their winter stash, safe from snow Deer run through the woods leaving tracks Searching for food displaying new racks Berries are scarce and grasses are gone Frantically searching all night until dawn Winds howl and scream for all to take notice Hibernation is key as nature’s survival focus Bears actively scavenge for food for their fall rest Preparing to survive the long winter warmly dressed

In Malta it only threatens rain, but it is still very warm. But I suppose it's already colder in the north. Lovely imagery.

Sounds like you're well into autumn Tania, starting to turn here with chillier mornings and nights. You captured it well in your verse. Hope your weekend is going well. Tom
