Fall is Here!


This has always been my favorite time of year.

The air is ever so crisp and clear.   120px-Period_full_stop_punct

The sky is a brilliant shade of blue,  Flickr_-_Nicholas_T_-_Periphery

And even the clouds can’t cover its’  hue.

The trees are ripening to beautiful shades of red, orange and yellow,  120px-Lone_multicolored_maple

And it is a perfect time to take a walk with my very special fellow.

If only the trees will hold their lovely leaves a bit longer,   120px-Goodpasture-tower-tn3

But then the wind begins to blow a little stronger.

I feel like a kid again as I skip through the leaves,

That are falling from all of the trees.    90px-Red_green_maples

I gaze about at all nature’s beauty around me.

And it makes me happy to be alive as any one can see.

I know that we must enjoy this season while it lasts

Because soon it will all be in the past,    90px-Hall-bend-trail-foliage-tn1

And I am truly thankful for all this glorious beauty He sends us from above.

Autumn is surely a sign for all of God’s love.

Thank you readers for stopping by.  I hope you are all enjoying this beautiful fall weather and all the beauty around us.


Thought for the day:  Get up and move around and keep yourself healthy and take a walk in this beautiful weather!

    Thank you for sharing this beautiful story with us! Fall is Holly’s favorite season, too. I guess I’m a big fan of Summer instead. But Fall certainly is pretty. I can’ t blame you for loving it.

    It’s spring here. But I agree, Autumn is beautiful. Summer is way too hot here. It can get to 48 degrees (118F) and once we had fifteen days straight over 35 (95F). I love those colors. Thanks for sharing your poem.
