September…a poem

white braille paper on brown wooden table

September’s
such a funny month
it’s as if it has free will
the kind everyone thinks we have
it can be warm and sunny
damp and cool
green or colorful
we never know what September
is going to give us
but the days are shorter
the early mornings nippy
and no matter what September pretends to be
we all know summer is on its way out
and winter has its foot in the door

Beware, fall approaches and the fairies are awake…a poem

brown dried leaves display

the falling of leaves
and the crunching sound
of footfalls
alert the wee folk
of our approach
they smile with glee
as they wait for their traps
to be sprung
laughing
as we untangle ourselves
never realizing
how close we have come
to being enslaved

A new month…closer to Halloween, bare trees, freezing temperatures, bitter wind, ice and snow. Who could ask for anything more? HELLO SEPTEMBER!!!!

Fall…the chicklets are getting The Coop ready for the party. New games and a costume contest will be added to the agenda, as well as some other surprises.

The pumpkins are gathering…wondering if it was worth it to spend their entire lives growing, just to be cut up and made into scary faces.

Fall…

it’s hot
still summer
but if you take a
deep breath
you can smell
fall
waiting in the wings
flowers
are starting
to go to sleep

THE COLORS OF FALL…a poem

I would like
wallpaper
that looked just like
this
beautiful colors
and shapes
covering a wall
bringing the wildness
inside
and I would want it
BIG AND BOLD
no tiny leaves
small and hard to see
not for me
but an explosion of
fall
arranged
to perfection
by
Mother Nature
Herself

Daughter’s pictures of a leaves…(2 pictures) and a poem

some believe that
leaves turn colors
in the fall
because of a chemical
reaction
but it’s not true
leaves turn
colors
to celebrate
their freedom
the freedom
to detach
from the tree
and fly
