IN A BLINK OF AN EYELID:

IN A BLINK OF AN EYELID:
In the blink of an eyelid.
Autumn has suddenly arrived.
Along with amazingly cooler temperatures.
Also all day cloudy skies.
 
Just a few days ago I was
Bemoaning the fact.
How hot it was day and night.
How every morning I looked a terrible sight.
 
These past few days we've had drizzly rain,
Leaves cascading from the trees.
The birds appear not to be happy about that.
Neither does the neighbourhood cats.
 
The "Minature Garden" a few doors away,
Is looking splendid having the rain.
The "Green Fingered " man has added new plants.
That will see us through Fall, again and again.
 
Happy Labour Day to my US friends.
May your holiday be as it should.
Hope the weather is how you want it.
Be happy and let your mood be good.

  1. I can't believe we are into September already. Looking at the photos I took on my recent weekend away I can already see some of the trees starting to change colour though it doesn't seem five minutes since the new leaves were just appearing. Time seems to go so fast these days :(

  4. September is a beautiful month. The tree leaves changing colors, the days growing cooler, excitement in the air of holidays soon coming. The hummingbirds will soon fly south. I'll miss them, but won't have to feed them until next spring. My favorite season is autumn. Your poem is lovely, as always. Have a great week.

  7. I can never make up my mind about my favorite season. When it's spring, I'm in love with it. When it's summer, I'm in love with it. When it's fall. . . Well, you can tell where this is going. Beautiful thoughts today. Thanks.

  8. As I've said many times, I love the heat. Our nights are getting cooler which is nice for sleeping but the days are pretty warm. The days are also getting shorter which I don't mind at all.
