The House of Autumn


Front row seat at the fall fashion show

Awestruck by the beauty before me

Under royal blue sky

Streets lined with Autumn’s glory

Unlike Gucci or Dior

She drapes her models

In familiar fabric

Year after year


No pantone colors for Mother Nature

Flame leaf sumac

Seems to strut

Clad in crimson


Red oak competes

They both strike poses

Frozen

Until the wind blows


Mrs. juniper’s evergreen

Adorned with globes, tiny and blue

Nearby, her spouse sports

Orange fingertips full of pollen


Finally,

Shining like flakes of gold

Are Cedar elm’s yellow leaves

Wrapping up the best show ever

Born and raised in Central Texas. Spending time outside brings me joy and I love to share my observations. I also belong to two writing groups and enjoy researching my ancestors. I find people interesting, but Nature keeps me sane.

  1. Betty, the description and photos here are imaginative and delightful. I do wish, however, that Mrs. Juniper’s husband would tone it down a bit. (smile)

    Will see you on Monday. Happy New Year!!

    abrazos, Marcia
