On theThreshold between Summer and Fall

On this side of the world we are just about crossing
the threshold between summer and fall.
I love the above is of clouds rising from the north
with the fiery red setting sun in the west reflected in them.
They are as beautiful as ocean waves yet they have a beauty of their own.

I love looking up at the sky, the clouds are just awesome.
Take time to look up once in a while ~ the view can be very uplifting! We have been gifted with so many God-given wonders, but sometimes we take them for granted. You don't have to pay to watch the skies, the ocean, the birds, the flowers, the fields ~ enjoy them and give thanks!

At the start of the past season and after the long winter months, most of us were yearning for summer, sunshine and beaches, siestas and all that summer would bring along with it.
So it may not be everyone's cup of tea to be thinking of going back to school, schedules and timetables. But certainly fall, or autumn as most of us like to call this season, is here once more. Isn't it just wonderful that we can see it happening with the dimness of autumn's continual lessening light and although we feel it in the decreasing energy our bodies go through to adjust to this quiet season, there is a certain calmness there with each and every one of us, if only we stop long enough to experience and appreciate it.
As you can tell, I am definitely in the mood for fall, looking forward to the wonderful smells coming from the kitchen especially soups and casseroles and baking (surely not summer food at least not for me), anticipating the expectations of getting ready for Thanksgiving and the fun part of Halloween and if I may say so, yes even the thrill of getting ready for Christmas!

Clouds are wondrous in the sky
Catching colours from earth's surface,
Fewer hours light our day
Making home a cozier place.
Our nights are much cooler
We dream soundly in our sleep,
Changing winds forever blowing
A crisp rust carpet for us to sweep.
Pumpkins, scarecrows, autumn leaves
Blend to help us remember
As we cherish sweet memories of seasons past
And enjoy these bountiful days of September.
I long for walks along the countryside
Wait for inspiration along the bay,
I love the scent of the first rainfall
Fall is here to stay.

  1. I love your poem. Autumn is my favorite season. Thanks for sharing.

  2. How beatuiful! Yes---I am ready for Fall, too! I love the cooler days and nights. I hope it lingers a while. I'm not ready for snow and ice....yet! I'll want that, too, when I'm ready. I do love to watch the seasons change.

  3. I love watching the clouds change shapes and I love sunsets too. Fall is here and we can feel it in the air. Very nice pictures and poem.

  4. Beautiful poem Doreen. I love the autumn sky. Everything is so much more intense. The blues are bluer, the reds, redder, the yellows....and so on. I am in awe of your top photo. That cloud is wonderous!!!!!!!!!!

  5. You are very talented. I like this poem. I haven't been around in a while. Went out of town and then just felt down in the dumps. Thanks for visiting my blog and showing your care.
