autumn, Island Life

just a little . . .

September sadness going on.

I have to say goodbye  to this …

 

 Not that I dislike autumn.

It’s a stunningly beautiful time of year on the Island.

The hazy, soft, somnolence of summer disappears.

The sky turns to deep, endless blue,

 the evenings shine  with a wonderful, rich, golden radiance,

 and the autumn sunset? 

 a breath-taking performance – vivid and extravagant.

October ushers in the changing of the leaves –  

like an artist has gone wild with his palette 

gold ochre, burnt sienna, vermilion red, 

chocolate brown, burgundy, saffron.

Oh, and the air …

I wish I could bottle it for you. 

It’s like an energizing tonic – crisp and exhilarating.

I do love autumn 

but

you’ll have to excuse me

 if I’m a bit melancholy …

summer and I are such good friends

It’s hard to say goodbye.
