Fare Thee Well (Finale)

You arrived this morning to take me away...


I climbed within your whispy curls...

and you gently carried me off to autumn skies.


Clouds that are whiter than white and a sky that is bluer than blue...

Autumn's crispness nips at my ears and nose,


as you carry me higher and higher.

You whisper sweet sounds in my ear,

lovingly persuading me to bid farewell to summer and to remember,

that fall offers it's own beauty.


I am no longer kicking and sceaming, seduced by your promises of fires, apples and the sweet smell of autumns entrance.

I'm not kicking and screaming either, I have turned on the heat and have donned my old red robe again... now where are my big fuzzy socks?

What a lovely post and those clouds are wonderful. We have had a lovely day here after all the storms. The sun was shining and we had blue skys. Lovely!!

Those clouds are beautiful, Jill! :) We went right from 80 degrees, hot steady humid sun to 58 degrees, dreary and gray.

You write exceptionally well!

I love clouds and that first picture is specially awesome! Together with your words, it made me think of a big white road.

Jill, I didn't know you were a poet, or were you quoting someone. If not, seriously, you should be published. So Lovely!

Beautiful post!!
I love the crispness of fall, the smell of the leaves and especially trips to the Farmer's Market to see all the fall veggies and pumpkin displays.
Cool here today 58. It was 72 yesterday this time.
I mailed my 'mail call' card this morning

Great idea to share your clouds with us.
