Colors of Autumn by Jim Foulk


I can smell fall
in the air
my eyes behold
golden leaves as
they descend slowly
onto the ground
the dying of summer
brings on fall
oh, the wonder of it all.

The Autumn colors
such a splendid marvel
painted all around me
covers me with
feelings of compassion
knowing this beauty
that surrounds me,
is only for a short time
until all the land,
will be barren
on this spot,
where I stand.

Spectacular fall colors with just enough evergreens for contrast. This is the way autumn should be.
I enjoyed the spotted sandpiper in your previous post, too—made me smile.

It has been very windy here in Ohio yesterday and today. It is also very wet and cold. The leaves are falling. The sky is a dark winter gray color. I can't seem to stay warm.

I enjoyed my visit to your blog.

Such pretty colors.
