Welcome Autumn


In honor of the first truly Autumn-feeling day in the Arizona desert, I thought I'd share an Autumn poem and one of my watercolor sketches. Enjoy!


Welcome Autumn

Welcome Autumn,
fiery bright,
shadows find new
slant of light.
Cooling nights,
shortened days,
dance of leaves,
Winter betrays.
Soon enough
the snows will come,
dulling leaves
to be entombed,
beneath Winter's white,
crisp chill of night.
Welcome Autumn,
fiery bright.

word of the Day: bluster. (verb) to roar and be tumultuous, as wind.
