Poetry and Photo: Falling In Love with Autumn


Falling In Love with Autumn

Today, I saw a cluster of leaves blushing in the breeze.
I thought it was because of my stare,
 and obvious admiration of their beauty amidst the trees;
However, I noticed when the cool winds began to blow even more,
the leaves' smooth epidermis would turn more crimson than before.
Then, I knew...
the leaves were falling in love with autumn.

LOL! Geoffrey, I laughed out loud when I read your msg on my phone. That's so true. It's just something about the colors and the breeze that inspire me. Thanks.

Thank you, Deb. I'm happy you like it. The inspiration and words came as sudden as the picture -- both today.
