RED OCTOBER

Summer is over,fall has begun
The leaves turned red, gold and a beautiful brown
lie fallen on the ground.
I wake up this morning to the rustling of the leaves
As they are tossed around the hillside
by the Autumn wind at play.
It is natures way of saying goodbye
to picnics in the park, barbeques and the summer sun.
But brings me closer to a trip to India
To visits with family,shopping and a place called home.

Yes autumn is my favorite time of year...i was born in autumn...on the day that signifies autumn in the US.. Thanksgiving day!....hmm lovely pics...

Id it is 4:46 PM  

October's dressed in red
Wonder what November likes
The earthy brown, perhaps
to herald the December whites.

You are really looking forward to your trip to India, aren't you?

Dotm 1:36 PM  

Such a fitting poem for this time of year. Beautiful description for Fall. Here the leaves are starting to fall a little. Last week the nights were quite chilly, and the past couple days have been quite warm- more like summer time today.
This is usually better sleeping weather. One night you wear winter sleeping clothes and blankets and the next it is too warm for even a light blanket. Can`t complain as it won`t be long before the snow has us dreaming of summer again..

starry nights 2:55 PM  

sweetstickychewy..thank you

Lotus Reads 3:38 AM  

Hi, Starry!

I love your poem and the title...beautiful! What are the Fall colors like in your neck of the woods? We've had a dismal show (not enough precipitation over the summer the climatologist says).

When do you go to India? Wish I were going, I'm so homesick!

Juhi 10:06 AM  

Beautiful pics of a beautiful time of the year...wish the leaves wud change colors a bit sooner here in NJ

Cuckoo 10:55 AM

Jac 10:36 AM
