Some mood music for this post:
My Dearest Autumn,
The seasons may change, but my heart remains true. It is you I love most of all.
Your slow sunlit days that are heady with change. When you begin to paint the trees with shades of crimson, gold, and ginger – creating a feast for my eyes.
You make the grey day glow and the sunny day is beyond all imagination, thanks to the vibrancy of your chosen color palette.
The nights you bring can be warm and sweetly mild – in Autumn Summer’s sweet embrace. Or they can be crisp and cool that are the perfect partner to a roaring fire.
You entice me to sip Manhattans with their smoky warmth.
And, when the falling leaves create a carpet so glorious on my lawn – I know you time here is fleeting.
My greatest joy is to savor you completely, because when you are gone it is you I miss most of all.
This week’s prompt was to write about Autumn and Carole and I would love it if you would join us on our Think, Write, Thursday journey. Signing up is easy and you can do that here.
But, really, won’t you share what you love about fall?
Oh yes – autumn is most certainly the best looking and best smelling season of all! and it’s especially nice today to spend a little time reflecting on what’s good. Happy Thursday!
Your lovely letter makes fall even more beautiful, and reminds me to appreciate its fleeting artistry.
A beautiful letter to a fabulous season.
I do love fall but today I am thinking about a new season that I know I will love too.
What a lovely letter! It’s been a lovely autumn, too. 😉
I love autumn, too, but the dark nights keep it from the top of my list.
I had forgotten how much I love Eva Cassidy. Thanks for the reminder. 🙂
love all about fall
I could have written the exact same thoughts, I love fall and everything about it. Gorgeous prose!!
Beautiful, calming, delicious…the best gift ever. Thank you Mother Nature and Kat.
It is indeed a soul warming season. 🙂
