My October

Orange leaves collude

With brown, and russet, and red

In my October

Bonfires blaze brightly

Crackling logs, shooting embers

In my October

Hoodies and sweaters

Tall boots with warm woolen socks

That’s my October

Okay, I live in Florida. Our autumns here are fairly subdued, but I have fond memories of autumns in Illinois where the leaves turned impossibly beautiful colors and the sound of leaves crunching under foot was music to my ears.

Peace, people.

  1. That is the autumn I want, not all this really cold overnight chill. We aren’t into the heart of those gorgeous leaves quite yet, but soon and that makes me happy!

  2. That is one of the biggest reasons that no matter how much Hubby and I may talk about moving somewhere else, we never will. We get the full range of all seasons and I’m not sure I’d ever be able to give that up.

    1. Every now and then I feel the need to see autumn leaves in person. Fortunately my daughter lives in Illinois, on the banks of the Mississippi. Beautiful fall foliage. I do not miss winters though. Not even a tiny bit.
