Autumn...why we live North...

Sumthin' 'bout the seasons
I hear...
when you're born
'n raised in the Nor'lunds
it stirs your blood
the changin' of a season
the leaves rustle in the air
it's different
it beckons you
to solace

unlike any other
you feel the calm
as winter gives
chance to pause
and reflect
what you breathed
in the spring
and toiled in the summer

my love
always beckons
crisp apple scents
in the air
books await your owning
fires cuddle memories
of a child
and the leaves
in your hair

I love reading your poetry too. Fall does certainly have a calming effect. Wish I had more time to just go with it. The leaves are falling like snow this morning but luckily, not too cool. Hopefully, it's getting everyone in the holiday spirit -- nothing worse then warm weather for Christmas Open House. Jan

That last photograph is as pretty as a postcard, Sharon.
