Autumn's Rosy Red Apples
I could stroll down this path forever
overjoyed with a lovely orchard
full of rosy red apples and orange pumpkins
breathing in the blustery brisk air
feeling the sunshine on this autumn afternoon
what a gorgeous way to spend the day.
Look to the blue sky
the leaves are falling like confetti on the grass
orange and reds glimmer on the pond
the reflections draw my eye down towards
water as the leaves float to and fro
isn't this enjoyable? Gorgeous!
I could stay here forever
so if on a carefree whim you happen
on an orchard on a warm and
sweet Autumn day
you may find somebody
happy go-lucky adoring
the rosy apples
and it might just be me.
My other inspiration for the poem was my trip to Jim's Apple Farm a couple of weeks ago. I hope you have all been able to get out and enjoy some of this beautiful weather. We are getting some blessed rain finally, but next week is predicted to be gorgeous again! We are barely into Autumn and Winter is already nipping at our heels! We have snow in the states just west of us and I am NOT ready for that yet!
Just follow the orange pumpkin-ed road to the end of the row and you have a great photo-op for your family! So cute!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone! See you in blog-land! ~~ Diane
