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
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.
