Leaves swarm fiercely into billowing clouds, then fall away to nothing.
A pure white cleanse blankets the way-back mountains.
Crisp air blesses lungs with wintery kisses.
Shadows lengthen through rainbow leaves, the light sharpening in shortened days.
The season’s first hoar frost whispers promises of coming cold.
Nature paints foliage with myriad brushes as red, orange, yellow, brown streak through still-green canvas.
Pumpkins smile toothy grins, ready to greet little adventurers. Witches and princesses, dinosaurs and daredevils, all greedy for chocolate bounty.
The seasons change relentlessly, blowing through our lives like leaves in the wind.
