Still no sign of Autumn’s arrival here in Interior BC. 😦
I’m waiting to take some new Autumn photos but for now, will have to wait. It seems that summer weather is going to prevail for a while, in the daytime that is. The nights are getting cool though.
In the meantime, here’s a favorite and popular poem from the archives to celebrate my favorite season.
Has Fall arrived where you are?
Poem for Autumn
Season of splendour.
As Mother Earth gently rests her weary head.
Preparing for the long sleep ahead.
Harbinger to the winter chill.
But for now…
Nature’s paintbrush is busy.
With brilliant palette of crimson and gold.
The forest ablaze with color.
As the late summer sun still warms the days.
My favourite season.
It’s beauty far surpassing the others.
A time for awakenings and endings.
Like no other.
A joy to once again rediscover.
We are reminded of another year’s passing.
Of changes, inevitable.
Required in all things.
And to everything there is a season,
and a reason we will find,
It’s loveliness and wonder endures.
Always a feast for the senses.
A gilded gift we receive.
To dazzle and delight.
We put away our thoughts.
Of the cold days ahead.
There is so much to enjoy right now.
Autumn’s timeless magic to behold.
