Haiku Reflections: Breathing Free


Fall is my favorite season for so many reasons.

Not only do I love all the colors, the cooler days…but I also feel my best, physically.

Is there anything more beautiful or energizing as walking through a forest or path surrounded by maple leaves on a crisp Autumn morning ?  Not that I can think of. 😉

  1. Agreed a 100% such lovely rainbows of fluttering leaves, and the smell of the evergreen filling all the senses fills all senses always my favourite season

  3. Lovely, Geraldine!

  4. Hi Lorraine, That’s so true, Autumn does “fill up the senses” in such a beautiful way. I’m going to remember that line. 😉

    Hi Joe, I love this photo too. Not much color here, so far this year so thank goodness for some file photos.

  6. PS: Is anyone else having problems commenting at Blogger and WP blogs? I have, all day today. Just wondering how widespread the problem is. Nothing else seems amiss online…

  7. Nicely put. I love autumn mornings.

  8. 🙂 The fall air is special isn’t it? You depicted it perfectily, Geraldine. l love it when we have a REAL fall. But that doesn’t happen many days here along the Gulf Coast.

    Hi Jim, A lot of places miss out on this magical season now, it’s so sad. Someone from Texas was mentioning that to me a while back. I love the four seasons. I hope I can continue to live in places that still have them, for a long time.
