I write what I feel…

Approach of Autumn

The early morning air

Has a chilly hint of cold

Whispering in my ear

A sweet reminder that

Autumn is almost here

Summer is moving past

Her flowers withered by the sun

We need the autumn respite

Before the winter comes

    • Actually I wonder which is why man is where he is today – because of his brain or his opposing thumbs? But it must be his brain because monkeys have twice as many opposing thumbs! 😀

    • Oh, yes Ruth, I will. I think some of the most beautiful flowers are to be seen on fruit trees. Such a pity they are so short-lived, although the fruit isn’t to be sneezed at!

    Some of us more so than others, I think at times. 😉
