Reason to Love the Season

Autumnal season finale
memorial of spring's youthful beauty
and summer's warm bounty

Nature's true firework
display.

Colors rich
Pharaoh's wear
Peridot and Malachite become
Citrine, Garnet and Pietersite.

Crystalline sky
Amazonite days
Lapis nights
Peach Moonstone
Harvest glory.

Spices craft the air
Nutmeg, Cinnamon, Ginger,
Pine.
Delight the senses.

Bushels of apples
Crisp, wet and delicious.
Squash buttery warm.

Fuzzy socks,
Wooly boots, 
Cuddly sweaters,
Reasons enough
To love the season.

PS ... I have been blessed to attend World Series games in 1987 and 1991. I was in the stands 27 rows behind home plate when the Twins won the Series against Atlanta! Talk about HIGH!! Unreal!

I was raised in the Midwest with all those 'apple pie' values!
