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

I have just received this from my friend, Joan, in Canada, and thought you would enjoy it:

Who said we didn’t evolve from monkeys???

  1. i love autumn…i am a little jealous, other than knowing that winter is coming…i am kinda glad we are almost out of it….we do need fall though…


  2. Autumn is my favourite season too, Brian. I don’t understand why though, but I even prefer it to the promise of spring.


  3. I like this one – oh, I just did! 🙂
    Monkeys would be filled with admiration at some of that!


  4. Love this, adee. I must say that I am enjoying the cooler weather now.


  5. It’s the opposing thumbs wot does it, Denise. But monkeys have the edge – their feet are like hands too!


    • 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! 😀


  6. Nice prose from your friend Joan. John gave me a good laugh with opposing thumbs.

  7. Lovely… and here we have cherry trees in blossom, on the way to spring….
    Enjoy your cooler autumn, Denise!


    • 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!


  8. Here in Miami, Florida, USA , it seems like hot summer 8 of 12 months.


  9. Autumn is the buffer for the winter. Beautiful, yet foreboding.


  10. “Who said we didn’t evolve from monkeys???”

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