Autumn Leaves

The air blows cooler crisper
Dangling leaves will soon
Give up their grip as
Rushing autumn breezes
Hurry here to greet us

Eagerly we wait
For change

    Nothing like autumn Carol but I am so happy it’s Spring here….beautiful poem 🙂 xxx


    • Spring is beautiful following Winter. Spring speaks of beginning while Autumn speaks of maturing and preparing for Winter. Cycles of life. Thank you for stopping by and for you comment. Blessings to you… xxoo

    what a cute pic. loved the poem. funny, i was sitting in kolkata and thinking about your autumn in the morning.

    a tree is shedding its leaves just out of my window, i was watching its yellow leaves softly flying in the winds and thinking about autumn in your country.


    • We have autumn at the same time? How interesting that is! In this part of my country the climate is warmer than in the northern states where I grew up. Here the leaves change slightly amber and pink and then fall, but in northern USA the leaves turn bright colors before they fall. We spent a number of years in Florida, too, where the leaves stay green all year long. Seasons are good. I am enjoying the autumn here. Blessings to you, Trisha…

        i dont think we have the glorious autumn that you have, in india (kolkata) the leaves just turn yellow and drop.

        its usually very hot. and a mild chill in early morning. you will feel good if you are out at that time.

        in northern india you may have to wrap a shawl, but in kolkata we will have to wait two more months to take out our woollens.

    I like to stay inside and snuggle up in my blankets on cold days 🙂


    • Ah. I know how you feel. I hate cold. My bones ache when it’s cold. Texas is in the south part of the United States and it doesn’t get terribly cold but cold enough for seasonal change. I like it. Winters are mild but there is a winter season here. In northern USA, winter is COLD COLDER COLDEST!!! I was never comfortable in winter there. I preferred to stay inside and snuggle up in my blankets, too. Thank you for visiting, Te’Kia. Blessings to you…

    Autumn is a call for retreat and renewal…I love this season. It speaks so deeply to me of the need to fall back, and to relax into letting go of all the things we don’t need…so that we are refreshed, and ready for God’s spring.


    • What a great way to think of fall. I like that. Fall back and relax into letting go of all things we don’t need. Refreshing…. Thank you for sharing that insight. There is a feeling of quiet reflection that goes with autumn. The warm colors also send a message of drawing nearer to God. Thank you for visiting and for your comment. Blessings to you, Jane…
