At last, autumn
It's initial attempts
Repressed by stubborn summer
Announces it's arrival

Not with thunderous fanfare
Or even a loud knock
But instead a familiar breeze

Harvest moon, new weather
Majestic colored leaves surrender
Lazy hammock invites slumber

Ere I drift away in dreams
My newly contented heart
Whispers with much relief

At last, autumn

  1. Lovely...I love how autumn always tiptoes in with sweet subtlety. You expressed that so well!

  2. Sherri - Thanks. It was definitely tiptoeing around here this weekend.

    Cooper - I'm sure the masses might disagree, but thank you, dear Cooper.
