Autumn Reveals Herself

The first cool morning

and autumn reveals herself to me:

she pulls her cape ’round,

crimson,

gold,

orange,

bottomless depths of evergreen,

and brown.

Week in Review – Thanks a lot, Non-Driver!

Sunday
I had to work today, but the morning drive was worth it.
Otherwise, I wouldn’t have gotten out to see this beautiful sky
and the early morning light setting the leaves ablaze
with scarlet and yellow and orange 
and burnt umber.

Perfect Autumn Evenings

These last few evenings have been so delightful, just what autumn is all about for me.  It’s been cool, but not cold, breezy but not blustery, the perfect weather for taking a walk.  The leaves seem to be in their last throes of passion, full bloom in various stages of color: brown polka-dotted yellow, scarlet and orange and burnt umber.  

And brown, brown, brown; all the fallen brothers and sisters layer the earth, crinkly and crunchy and light. They blow and swirl across the ground in games all their own; they call to me, “Run, run, come and play!”  I know why kids need to jump right into a pile of leaves, and I want to do that too.

Here are some of the pictures I’ve taken on my recent walks with Louis.  Fair warning: I love pictures, and I’ve decided to put whatever and however many pictures I want into this post.  Feel free (read: do it!) to check out my photo blog; it’s got autumn pictures there all this week.  And no duplicates :). I wanna see them pictures…
