Autumn Rapture

The many synonyms for “rapture”
are perfect in the way they capture

How I feel each autumn season,
The joy of bliss is the reason.

I experience a kind of ecstasy
with jewel-toned leaves all around me.

Enchantment comes to mind as well…
with happiness, my heart does swell.

The Fall to me brings such delight;
a state of euphoria comes to light.

This is my season to feel great pleasure
As Mother Nature shares her treasure.

Go leaf peeping: it’s free for all.
Such exaltation Ah, it’s Fall!
