Thursday Thirteen: Autumn dba 'The Fall'


1. I like autumn, which is currently doing business as The Fall

2. Because everything does. Always the atmosphere is animated with color.

3. This most vibrant and beautiful time of dying is full of sound, too.

4. There is no silence. Anywhere.

5. And there is more light. It gets through everywhere and touches everything.

6. That warmth and light ignite the secret incense of autumn,

7. And the air is filled with the fragrance of leaves and wood and earth.

8. At night the moon is visible--in fact, it is touchable

9. As it rests in the cradle of bare branches at the tops of trees.

10. The moon surrenders to the trees; the trees, to the cold; the cold, to

11. Small fires and the warm breath of living things

12. That continue their steady march to winter

13. Through leaves that (like I said) will have the final word.

Thursday Thirteen

  3. Beautiful Sandy. Reminds me of why some parts of America call Autumn "Fall". You are so right - everything falls.

    Very beautiful photo and text to go with it. It is beautiful with all the colored leaves, but we have too much rain and clouds in the autumn over here. Just a few sunny days to enjoy. Today the rain is pouring down...

  25. Is "Fall" a localized term? I've lived in New England all my life--it never occurred to me that other locales only have "autumn". Happy TT!

    Loved it all-but my favorite was there is no silence-so true leaves crunching, acorns falling.

  39. This was so wonderful, Sandy. I love your perception of things and the way you express yourself. You really are a wonderful writer, and I always enjoy my visits to your blog.

    Autumn, to me, is always a time of renewal. I think the cool clean air refreshes the world, lets you think again, after being bogged down in the heat of summer, makes you feel alive.

    Autumn is my favorite season. (I loved the "dba" bit, by the way.) I wish that there was more of an apparent season change out here.

    Sigh.
