Autumn Falls...

...All of a sudden,
And you're here! Bringing your cooling mornings,
Causing me to make porridge and gaze out the window at your beauty.

If I were a season, I would be you.
For somedays I feel a little, {or a lot} orangey, even sepia in tone;

Sometimes I feel as if I've been holding it together so well all summer-
That now I need a little time to shed my leaves,
cool my mornings and my nights,
get ready for the cold.

Wrap myself in golden,
turn a year older
and God willing, a year wiser as well!

Wishing you a happy, hearty new Autumn/Spring/Season/thing!
