Although I love the fall, I'm a "summer person," so it's a bittersweet time for me...

It arrives through an open window in

the middle of the night, when a gentle

breeze softly ruffles my hair.


The moon hangs in the distance of an

early September sky, countless stars

twinkling all around.


The air now smells of autumn as summer

comes to a close, life’s new chapter ready

to unfold.

Here I am waiting for the gives of Fall
the scent, that lingers in the air

Dawn, Dawn, Dawn, each season has such beauty, the dark nights are the cosy nights, the autumn has a beauty of solitude and we only love summer thanks to the beauty of the other seasons.

You can go play conkers and catching leaves 'neath the full moon light.

Beaut of a write from a beautiful lass. x

How gently, subtly you ease us into the season, Dawn.
I'd love to be able to sleep comfortably with my window open at night; unfortunately it's too humid all the year round. Where I am, I miss the seasons and their changing quilts.

And that is exactly how it arrives! You can feel it and smell it and see it all at once. I love this. :)

A lovely picture and you capture the essence of its autumn scene and the mood of the season. With some leaves already falling, I, too, feel a sense of spring passing into autumn.

What a refreshing feeling! We haven't had that yet, summer is still beating hard, but I'm looking forward to it by next month.

I was thinking the same thing yesterday by the Pacific Ocean. You can see a slight change of water color and feel a small bite in the wind as autumn slowly creeps ashore. It's actually my favorite time of year. Nice poem Dawn.

Totally with you in this, Dawn, being a sunshine-type BUT, having been blessed with a wonderful, lengthy period of dry and fair climes, I'm ready for the first time in many years to feel the contrasting sensual swell in the elements that are now daily presenting. Your words move us into this phase of transition nicely. xx

Enchanting, mysterious, soft ~
And so many things seem to drift in that open window as I read this...wisdom, the vast unknown, the smell of autumn leaves and some peach pie ~

Nice work, reminding us of the seasons that change. Autumn makes me think of winter which I really don't think I'll enjoy. But then when its here, I find more peace than I expect!
