Whispers of Autumn

Whispers of Autumn

Whispers of autumn are alive in the breeze

as splashes of color burnish the trees...

and the harsh heat of summer departs with a bow

as the entrance of autumn is taking stage, now.

Mosses and mushrooms, so plump and so plush,

are trimming the pathways with autumn's sweet blush.

The air is perfumed with the sweet scent of fall,

and nature is busy in response to her call.

Summer took stage, performed and, now, leaves

As whispers of autumn are alive in the breeze.

I so can't wait for autumn on the East Coast. For most of the reasons above. Great Hub!

tnderhrt, I like the flow of this poem, the transition from summer to fall. Fall has yet but a whisper as summer is passing. Enjoyable read. Thanks for sharing. Regards, Robert

My husband came in today, saying, l´ve got you a present.

Knowing how broke we are at the moment l couldn´t imagine what it could be.

He walked over to my glass bowl of dried flowers and placed one enormous leaf that looks just like the big beautiful red one in your top picture. ´Love token´´ he said and walked away to the bathroom..
