Savoring the Season

Blustery winds of an autumn day
Twisted, turned the leaves away
To frolic in a rainy dance,
Leaving all transfixed in trance.

While tree limbs rocked to and fro
Small crabapples didn’t know
How to prance amidst the leaves
So, plop they dropped from the trees.


I stooped to capture nature’s gift,
A pair of reddish treats to lift
And place amidst my fall display
For all to savor each October day.



Rainy, dreary autumn days
Can be a blessing in many ways.
So savor the season as it unfolds.
Find fall's richness of red and gold.


Creating fall displays from autumn's bounty is a delightful way to "find fall" this season. Consider taking time to reflect with me as I create the "Finding Fall Gallery" for a global gallery of artistic expressions. Some members of the Poetry Friday community have submitted their original photos and poems already but I am continuing to collect offerings. The "Finding Fall Gallery" will be unveiled at the end of the season. 


If you are interested in finding out more information about the Finding Fall Gallery, you can go here.


Please join the Poetry Friday community hosted by Cathy Mere today to find a variety of offerings by many writers. You can enjoy the readings as you relax this weekend.
