Autumn, Fall into Winter

Farewell  autumn, I say farewell as you remind me you not here to stay

I must say I enjoyed autumn a time for fall, falling of leaves

A time also to really listen, listening to the wind shaking down the leaves 

As they hold on, holding on and hanging on that tree

I will surely miss your beautiful browns, yellow and reds

Reminding me of hope, renewal and growth

The trees blown down bare, almost naked

As we get thrown into winter, winter that’s often unexpected 

My breath taken away as I gasp in the blistering winter air

So cold but thankfully we can generate some heat

Producing the warmth formed by fire or perhaps a hot stove

A cooking stove with steaming soups and stews

Creating that homely atmosphere

As we cuddle under blankets

Enjoying the love, the love from a very warm heart

Winter, a time to embrace the cold through the promise of warmer days to come
