Wistful September

Summer fades with September's evenings' chill. Mornings now are crisp and clear. There is a wonderful wake-up feeling in the changing weather and the tender nostalgic passion of September hues.

In the Woodland

Through the trees
Seasons’ shadows stir.

In the woodlands
A September breeze wind-curves its way down
The sinuous branches of old oak trees
Whispering: “soon…”

Past the Full Moon

Aloft on a current of change
Time and season drift;
Past the wink of the first evening star
Autumn rides in on a wisp of a cloud.
As the full moon rises-
Through the trees
Seasons’ shadows stir.

September Leaves

By chill of the evening,
The crickets’ summer song is silenced.
As you sleep snug in bed,
A magical metamorphosis:
Autumn leaves
Now turning orange, gold, and red.
Through the trees
Seasons’ shadows stir.

September Shadows

Hues of earthy shades, time’s rhythm,
Years that are woven to make the fabric of wind,
Whispering September once again:

Through the trees
Seasons’ shadows stir...

Ah, the Season of mist and mellow fruitfulness ( John Keats ) dear Delicia ...How the year has flown .I joined W last Autumn , and here we are again , back in the days of cool evenings and beautiful changes of the leaves as they say their farewells to us .
God bless you and Mike for sharing your neck of the woods with us all . Lovely .

Misty mornings and rainy days with the odd spells of sunshine. We spent an Autumn in Cape Cod, drove up to Maine and stayed for a few days. I rented a wooden house right in the middle of a wood. The lady who rented us the place used to leave pieces of cake and apples by the front door. A beautiful place with beautiful people. In all of the many countries and continents I have been America is my favourite.
