Autumn is a time for rejoicing.


Autumn


From Canada to the Carolinas

From Maine to Mexico

And across the vast expanse of

Europe and Asia

The season of wonder is upon us.

It’s in the air that hint of winter

When the breeze chills but does not bite

When the summer winds have

Blown away the heat of day

And the passions of night.

 

It’s the season of visual wonders

The time when Nature shows us

Her magic and masterful touch.

In sweeping strokes of colors

From reds to greens to browns

And oranges and yellows

She transforms the landscape

Beyond the skills and beyond the

Imaginations of all in her domain.

 

It’s in the leaves.

Oh those crispy crunchy

Swirling twirling cascading

Reminders of youth and of

Memories and of dreams fulfilled.

We kick them and rake them

And extract from them all

That the summer offered -

And did not offer.

 

Did we do enough?

Did we dream enough?

Did we lift our spirits high enough?

Are we riding the wave of life

Or are we bracing for yet another

Setback?

 

When finally the trees are barren

And the magic has slipped away

We are left without answers.

Still we carry forward our old

Hopes and new dreams into the

Next cycle knowing

Our hides are tougher our spirits stronger

And a new wave of life lies just

Beyond the horizon.

Quite a rundown on the human spirit, my new friend. Concise. Informative and questions. I like questions.

One thing is certain, and that is the seasons. Autumn is one of the finest because of its warm days and cool nights and radiant colors. A lovely write to read.

Beyond the horizon", in which we are hopeful....! Well done, Edward!
