Autumn Thoughts.

All the leaves are dancing  swirling down

Undulating  in the breeze round and round

Tumbling  rumblings underground

Urgently  creatures searching for   their stores underground.

Mists  in the mornings, chilly  nights soon be fireworks after  Halloween  frights!

New seasons  Harvest Moon, witches and pumpkin men  will be here soon!




The sun’s heat  is  waning  and the nights  are drawing in

Chilly winds are swooping round corners and  whipping up  the leaves

Early morning porridge, make sure  you wrap up the cold will nip your skin.

Summer sadly  has taken her up her shoes and left us the dark mornings to grieve.

Ready  for the harvest ready  for shorter  days

Time to get out  your  winter  coats  and your furry boots

The long  and lazy days  of  summer  have vanished in a haze.

Cars  driving with their lights on early, listen out for their  warning toots!

    Ha! This is so good Willow – upbeat and yet very descriptive of the darkness coming. I love this time of year, like getting snuggled in front of the fire. I think it brings people closer. Thank You.

    I do enjoy thinking of leaves dancing, Willow. These two packed withimagery, the first as if with my heart and the second with my body. Thank you…gorgeous!

    Lovely Willow. Sums up the lovely and not so lovely (to me anyway) like the early darkness.

        Absolutely. Halloween is my favorite holiday. Wait!!! Is Halloween considered a holiday? Hmmm, oh well, I love dressing up in crazy costumes and going all out. Christmas for me is hot chocolate and marshmallows snuggled up in front of the fireplace. Ahhhh. Can’t wait! 😄

        Halloween has in recent years become more popular over here in the UK. There are parties and children and young people dressed roaming the streets for trick or treat. Then of course Christmas a lovely family time .. yes Hot chocolate by the fire sounds delightful!!

        Oooooh, don’t forget turkey day. (Thanksgiving) I love that day, and the day after, and the day after that. Oh my goodness. It’s such a yummy 3 days. I say 3 days because after that I’m all turkeyed out. Darn, I just made myself really hungry. Hahaha

        Awww, I’m sorry. I forget also. I guess I’m just so accustomed to the American way that I don’t realize not everybody celebrates. Now in the one who needs to be forgiven.

    You make Autumn sound so mysterious, Willow! Beautifully written, though I am already counting the days until Summer returns. 🙂
