The changing of the seasons are my favorite times of the year. The changes reminds me why we’re alive and rejuvenates my senses, mind, body and soul. This is a fall list poem.

Fallen Leaves

Fallen Leaves

summer’s last lingering bloom
October’s Harvest Moon

birds migrating south
carmel apples in my mouth

ruby red leaves
golden yellow leaves
orange leaves
racking together leaves
during the crisp eves

jumping in leaf piles
children’s autumn smiles

kids are all in cahoots
jeans, fleece jackets and leather boots

apple orchards & hot apple cider
beautiful web with a spider

lost in a cornfield maze
crisp clear night, a star gaze
Heritage Days

community yard sales
corn stalks and hay bales

first frost, crunchy ground
wind in the trees, rustling sound
no natural joy left unfound

crisp cool, smokey air
Bloomsburg Fair
Halloween candy, plenty to share

pretend monsters moans
shrieks and groans
people begin wearing jewel tones

Autumn Trees

Autumn Trees

cutting firewood
trick-or treating round the hood

candy corn
foggy morn

basket weaving
Halloween & Thanksgiving
Autumn is the season to live in!

nippy nose
chilly toes
jack o’lanterns & scarecrows

pumpkin seeds roasting
marshmallows toasting

costume making
pumpkin pie baking

apple butter, apple dumpling
pumpkin patch & pumpkin picking

spiced wafers & chrysanthemums
bobbing for apples in large wooden drums

Hubster & Pumpkin Leaf Peeping at PA Grand Canyon

Hubster & Pumpkin Leaf Peeping at PA Grand Canyon

witches, goblins and ghouls,
kettle cooked soup in bread bowls

pomegranates, cranberries, munch, munch
walnuts, almonds, chestnuts, crunch, crunch
