My Favourite Autumn Leaves The Song Of the Season


Autumn is I believe the song of the season , its beauty is unrivalled , the shop stopping colour that changes as Autumn creeps on . The winds that blow sometimes gently and other times with such a swirl the myriad of the colourful leaves that are thrown up before our eyes.

The leaves for me have to be the best bit of Autumn your beauty is there for me and carries me through to winter.

To hold a leaf up to the light and look through it is like natures kaleidoscope, leaves are natures finest and they bring untold treasures for us. There is no better way than to take an autumn walk to blow the cobwebs away , to coin a phrase from a well known song " Forever Autumn"

I love to see the butterfly dance of the leaves as they fall, leaves bring out the inner child in us, this is a feeling I never want to lose. To kick the leaves , to crinkle, crunch and lead upon them is like jumping into a fire but a fire of blazing Autumn colour.

The Autumn boughs of the trees are my triumphant arch as I walk upon my beloved lanes , I love to be the only one about but I will share my world with you if only for a while for I love the stillness of the world an the time in which it allows me to think.

When I have peace in my world then all other worries are melted away.

I walk on a carpet of Autumn leaves and my heart sings.

Leaves are in my Autumn treasure bag are they in yours ?

Even when the frost grips the Autumn leaves hold their beauty.

I have Autumn leaves in my minds eye do you ?
