the party's over

the confetti of leaves has fallen
the guests have all gone home,
taking with them
pictures and memories
of the seasonal change
in the mountains

the party is over
nothing left but
the clean up

the driveway looks a little different
than it did this day
last year
the wind and rain
have taken care of the leaves

the deck also looks a little different
than it did just a little while ago
with its summer decor

Moisture is a good thing. We are in desperate of it. Instead of fog we have dust.

What a difference a "day" (insert the accurate time amount) makes, huh?

So sad to see beautiful Fall go. Next comes the cold, snow and ice. But, who's complaining? Along with the cold weather comes the beautiful holidays and family and friends! You can't beat that. Seasons come and seasons go, but family and friends are the best.

Whatever season, your place always looks beautiful. Soon you'll have snow and Christmas lights - woo hoo!

Like the light from a full moon on a crisp fall night, the peace that emanates from your reflections, your poetry. Refreshing, beautiful. Just one more of your valuable talents. Thanks for sharing your reflections. They become our own.
