  1. You capture the many sensory swirls of autumn – I so welcome the crispness, color, and pumpkin (and cinnamon) flavors. Life really does paradoxically slow down and speed up in this season! Love this nugget of truth about high school seniors saying “Let us be”… couldn’t help thinking about senior citizens sometimes wishing that, too.

    1. Thanks, Fran.
      Autumn is the most sensory involved season, I think! The days go fast, it gets dark early. and oh yes, both HS seniors and us adult seniors. the last two lines are my favorite!

  2. All of this!! Yes, yes! Bring on the fall! And now you have me wanting Starbucks – a cinnamon dulce de leche frappe. Ahhhh……

    1. Kim, I have no clue what you would be drinking. I’m a black coffee so I avoid Starbucks!

    You have touched on so many beautiful attributes of fall – I love the crisp night air, too, and this line “Life speeds up, slows down.” I love the busyness of fall – even for me as a retiree, there is a quickening to get things done – tidying the yard, the house. I always feel a little sad about the shorter days. Thank you for sharing!

    1. Thanks. Maureen.
      Always more to do than time permits!

  4. Poems around autumn! Love it. Your poems remind me of the many things there are to love this time of year.

    1. Thanks,Cathy. So much to love about Autumn.

  5. The sights, sounds, and smells of Autumn are like no other season. You capture them all so well.

    1. Thanks. Forcing rhymes … sometimes swkward! But also fun to see where they lead.
