An Autumn Day

The lively choreography of autumn

an emphasis on leaves

a kaleidoscope of colors

putting the spirit at ease

A briskness in the air

cool to the skin

wrapped in a blanket

watching the leaves spin

Fall decorations

surround the patio

colorful pumpkins and mums

smooth jazz on the radio

Firepit lit

s’mores and hot apple cider

love and laughter

smile grows wider

Silent now

listening to the crickets

sky filled with stars

moonlight filters through the thicket

A beautiful season

harvest of serenity

the smells of autumn

oh so heavenly
