Forthcoming of Fall

November 30, 2011
As I take a step outside my screen door


I am greeted by a gallant gust of wind


Welcoming me to the new season


As the warm summer nights come to an end


The cool, crisp fall is among us


Leaves swoon over me


Turning bright red as if blushing


And falling to the ground in my presence


But I am a heart breaker, stomping on each leave


Only to hear the delightful crunching sound under my boots


Fall brings times of giving thanks and picking pumpkins


Gathering around at a table with the ones you love


Spending time outdoors before it is too late


And the world seems to be covered in a blanket of snow


Watching the warm sunset turn from pink and peach to pitch black at 5 o’clock


Smelling the scrumptious snacks of the season coming straight from my oven


Tempting my sweet tooth with each inhalation


It is the perfect weather for riding my bike around my neighborhood


To view the fall scenery unfolding around me


And watch as others experience the sensation of change happening around us


As I sit under my large maple tree, dripping with sap


I can sense the coming of fall and all the memories to be made waiting for me.
