~Autumn Revisited~




From the north to the south
as we drive down the coast
a mural of color surrounds us
parading the turning of summer to fall
in raving splendiferous boast

a picture of life framed by pine-tree green
and brown-yellow grass of late season
a riot of reds and yellows and golds
captures the spirit of Autumn's bright reason

Michigan's trees are now naked
their carpet of leaves on forested ground
but the south is a treat for the senses
autumn is here, one more time around
~

Fall's come pretty late this year on the east coast and though it's a bit cooler than I'd like, it is a beautiful canvas.  
Welcome back, Lyra...missed your colors.

(smiles) Oh Lyra, this is soooooooo lovely, sweet friend, it is wonderful to see all the various fall foliage all across the nation at nthis time of year, I wish I was further south right now so I could see the colors ever so bright! (kiss on cheek) This is gorgeous, sweet friend, we all love you so much! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Lyra, thank you for sharing!



May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,
Noah Eaton

Nothing is prettier than the brilliant autumn trees. I wish they didn't fade away so soon though.

Thanks so much for your reply, Duncan...

Our colors were all gone but it was gorgeous in Tennessee, North Carolina and Georgia

Thanks so much, Sandra...  I guess part of the beauty of Autumn is that it doesn't last long and is therefore more precious to us

Michael...  Autumn is that time of year when the leaves turn red, yellow and gold and the temperature gets nice and chilly....
See... you really don't know what you are missing down there in Florida!!!!!
I couldn't live without this season
Its my favorite...
How do you survive in Florida with just one season, all year round?

Thanks so much, Nancy...  I guess I was doubly blessed this year...
I had the Michigan Autumn which was late but lovely and then the Autumn down south which was even later and even lovelier...

Hi, sweet Chippymunk...... I don't know how I missed this yesterday. It's so beautiful, with all the pretty colors.

By the way, I guess it's because I'm in Northwest Florida, but I know what Autumn is and I love it. (Now, I do have to admit that we don't have much of it.........HeeHee!!)

It is so good to see you back, sweet Lyra. I missed you a lot.
