I love this time of year.
While looking out the window at the leaves scattered on my neighbor's roof yesterday morning,
this poem came to me.
by Janet F. Smart
Leaves scatter upon the rooftops, while
walnuts wait for the first frost.
Sapphire skies, cool nights, dewy mornings,
sweet apple cider and whiffs of chimney smoke.
Pumpkins sit on the front porch, smiling
because fall has arrived.
What words come to you, when you look out at fall in all it's splendor?
