Stripping away the rose colored glasses of denial concerning my reality. Getting in touch with truth. Reaching out to others in empathy concerning their reality and their walk to truth.

Autumn scent

I love the smell of the leaves
in the Autumn as they fall
as they die. I watch the wind give them flight, then
land on the ground.
Resting with a crunching sound.

Leaves carried north, carried south,
and swarming 'round my feet, as
a faint fireplace in the distance
gives scent to burning wood.
The two scents blend and it feels good.

Thanks you, Dixie

  2. Hi Dixie,
    And now for an actual comment :) Speaking of leaves and even turning them over, I, yes I, have this really big tree in my back garden and my gosh, all them leaves that needed raking.
    Indeed, the two scents you mention, blended together, feels good. Just thought I would add my two scents, I mean, two cents worth :)
    Hope you are well in your new adventure.
    In kindness and respect, Gary

  3. Dear Dixie,
    Ah, Autumn. With its russet colours and intoxicating smells. How beautiful it is, and, in England, how bloody cold!
    Lovely poem, Dixie.
    Best Wishes,

  4. Hi Winda,
    Thank you for the various invitations. I'll soak it in as fast as I can.

    Haven't been doing 'Twitter'...hmm.

    Sounda great though; give me a chance to check it all out. Meanwhile, enjoy your week!

  5. Ah, Gary,

    Nothing like a big tree to get me thinking. I've climbed many in my day... fell out of a few... but there's always that delicious scent.
    I think it shows good sense to leave your leaves alone. You might even bag them, tie with festive ribbon, for 'Boxing Day Eve'?
    I hope you're doing something with that or the Grinch this year... I want to be Cindi Lou Who, please!!!!
    Thank you, and the adventure calls, Dixie

  6. Hi David,
    Thank you for the nice comment. Sorry about the 'bloody cold'. Typical Charlotte weather, the temperature alternates between being very warm and being very cold.
    Felt like snow this evening, and had the scent of Christmas, what I call 'the scent'. (More will be revealed).
    Time for the fuzzy house shoes.
    Enjoy the Autumn,


Thank you for visiting me. Want to add your thoughts?
