window on the sun-painted landscape. The season has changed from Summer to Fall. Yet, in Southwest Florida the change is imperceptible.
Last week, my husband and I visited my former Massachusetts home. Brrrr! I had no problem recognizing the Autumnal change. But, as I pulled my jacket tighter, I couldn't resist scanning the greenery to spot the tell-tale signs of the season--color.
Autumn is one of the most vibrant times of the year. The flaming reds, the bright oranges and yellows that herald the end of summer brighten my spirit. Alas, we were too early. I could spy only teases of red. As much as I love the sunny colors of Florida, I miss Fall's splendor.
I've written a Haiku--fond memories of a New England Autumn:
Nature's Fall display
Instills a sense of wonder
And peace in my soul.
Red, orange, yellow,
The fleeting colors of Fall
Blaze before they die.
REMEMBER, KEEP WRITING!
