Autumn provides rich flavors for all the senses.
Using our eyes, we see the changing foliage
Turning from greens to the reds and golds of old age,
Until color drunk from our photo lenses.
Making spicy aromas come from the kitchen,
Noses filled with sweet and savory scents of home.
Sitting at table together, no more to roam.
Filling soups so tasty that drool runs down my chin.
Leaves crunching under new shoes as we walk to school,
All the quilts and blankets airing on the clothes line,
Velvety soft sweaters in toasty hues feel fine
Over long sleeved shirts and corduroy skirts, so cool!
Respect paid to nature and the joy of living,
Seasonal harvest is feted with thanksgiving.
