Fall into Autumn

Fall into Autumn

Frolic in its fallen leaves dressed in colors that adorn the harvest moon

Envelope yourself in all things flannel

From shirts to blankets

Share stories around the roaring campfire

Lighting the chilly night

Cataloging those summer days recently passed to be merely memories

Fall into Autumn

Find those wooly socks buried deep in that cedar chest

Dig out those boots, be they Sperry or L.L. Bean

Search for that collegiate hoodie tucked away in your closet

Pull that slouchy beanie over your carefree tresses

There’s no time to waste

Winter waits on the horizon

Preparing to undo the leash that restrains its bitter hawk

Fall into Autumn

Slowly sipping that Pumpkin Spice latte

Watch the marshmallows sink into the hot cocoa

Be lazy on those quiet rainy mornings

Cuddle up with a book or the one that warms your soul

Breathe in the crisp air as apple and cinnamon; rosemary and thyme dance a waltz only known by them.

Fall into Autumn

The schedule becomes routine in September

Eat candy like you’re eight in October

Give thanks for all you’ve ben bestowed with in November

Fall into Autumn

It only comes around once a year

So, lavish in its subtleties.
