Autumn trees take my breath away every year. In 2021, they’re particularly beautiful due to warm days and cold nights. Scroll down for the poem they inspired. A few of my favorite maple photos from Tuesday:
Leaf litter may be my favorite kind to be strewn on the ground. (fruit is good too, unless it’s ginko…)
“Good morning star shine, the earth says hello. You twinkle above us, we twinkle below…” –Godspell musical
I have gathered leaves I thought were so pretty, but if I forget to press them in a book, they curl and turn to dust.

Autumn’s best dressed
Ladies in red, and yellow, and green.–Rebecca Cuningham, 5 November 2021
The air smells like autumn, cold with a touch of decomposing leaves. In the distance we can hear the call; gobble, gobble, gobble. Thanksgiving arrives in three weeks. I would not disturb these wild birds, of course!
To which November celebrations do you look forward?
Thank you for joining me on this walk. Have an excellent day.
