I love when a late October day is crisp

and I can see my breath

..floating in the air

Faery homes glisten in the early morning fields

..still sparkling

from the night before

Somehow I just know they’ve been dancing

all hours long

in the silvery blue moonlight..

Mist rises




from the silence

of the pond

..as though it is whispering a secret long held within

a weary traveler from the hot dry summertime


..letting go

Snow white crane stands triumphantly,

A beacon beneath the crimson leaves

And, there is a tree in the heart of the woods on the right of my path that will turn the color of sunshine soon

But, for now

..tiny star flowers are blooming in its tender shade

Autumn has arrived with colorful fanfare

Tomorrow it will be November…again

And yet, full of moments that have never been

One cannot help but to think of time

at times like this…

I love when a late October day is crisp

And time is of no consequence

when the sky is such a heavenly shade as this

the sort of blue that sings to the very heart of you

its soulful song of everyday

..of always

  1. Beautiful images and wow could I ever use a crisp October morning just now. Even a slightly limp one would do. Instead, we are getting Summer Part Deux with temps in the mid-90s. I protest! Peacefully, of course.

    1. Good gravy! Still in the mid 90’s! That’s too hot for October/November! Hoping it chills out soon for Max He needs a good excuse to wear a dapper sweater. 😊🐢


  2. Autumn used to be my favourite season when I was little. And then I moved to a place where autumn is short and followed by a lengthy winter. Gradually, I ceased to appreciate the coziness of autumn as it reminded me that the long, cold winter was just around the corner. Thanks Suzanne for reminding me of the magic of this beautiful season with your gentlest words and loveliest images β€οΈβ˜ΊοΈπŸπŸ‚πŸΆ

    1. I understand what you mean, Isabelle. A short autumn is so sad to me. Sometimes here the cold comes quickly and it’s all over before it began. I have to hurry and enjoy it in case it doesn’t last long. Thank you for your sweet thoughts Isabelle. Hugs πŸ€—πŸ‚πŸ§‘πŸπŸ’›β€οΈ

  4. I remember when October was freezing in the shade and hot in the sun. And October nights were crystal clear! It’s like the atmosphere was so clean… we don’t have them like this anymore.

      1. Fall was the time when things began to be cold and families came together. Halloween was fun. But then there was thanksgiving and Christmas. Then we started all over again.
