Leaf/Leaves/Leaving

       Note: The last storm swept away most of the leaves, but I still have the photos to savor!

Leaves of yellow, orange, and gold

shimmer in the early morning sunshine.

Falling leaves burnished

as to the ground they fall….

soundlessly —

a blanket of golden-colored leaves

to celebrate Autumn ‘s yearly gift!

 

 

Bonus Photos: There are still some mums blooming in our neighborhood and condo grounds

Falling Leaves

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

I thought I had finished with my fall poems. (A couple more will be posted in Travel Tales for November, since I ran out of days in October, and like cellphone minutes, I am rolling the rhymes over to November at no cost to you!!!)

 

‘Tis almost Halloween
no goblins have I seen….

Just falling leaves:
My heart just grieves

To see the limbs go bare
And don their winter wear.

Must I wait another year
‘Til I get to gaze & leer

At Mother Nature’s fallen glory?
OK, OK, this is my final autumn story!

(Until next year!!)

P.S. I have one more recipe that will post later today. This rhyme was an unexpected addition to October.
