October's birthstone is the opal The opal is thought to have the power to predict illness. This is because the opal responds to heat. Sickness increases body temperature before signs of illness appear. The increased body heat causes the opal to lose its shine, leaving it dull and lacking color. It is also said that the opal will crack if it is worn by someone who was not born in October.
Its birth flower is the calendula.


The skies are gray today
The winds are swirling overhead
Leaves blown free from the trees
Land on the ground to form a bed
The colors range from red to brown
They create a colorful canopy on the ground
The clouds hang low across the skies of gray
The sunshine is impeded on the cool October day
Yet the trees seem to dance merrily in the breeze
And squirrels scurry happily among the trees
The circling clouds shift about as if promising rain
If one takes to time to listen he can hear the winds refrain
I can sit for hours and admire the autumn weather
The climate change, the colored show which exists together
The brisk, teasing airstream caressing my cheek and hair
The evidence of transformation happening everywhere
It’s October

An apt and timely ode to the season, Lew. Your descriptive verses also fit the weather here today. Love and blessings,

Regis
