The First Hint of Fall

Updated on September 12, 2017

I went out on a limb to write this humorous poem: My aging years with my favorite actor, Johnny Depp. My apologies, Johnny.

The soul of autumn.

Mother Earths Fall Celebration

The first hint of fall arrives

We slip into the leeward side of the seasons

The Autumnal Equinox

Enveloping cold fronts from the north


The sky regains its deeper hue

Crimson spider lilies dance on long stalks

Humingbirds visit for a nectar's drink

We walk through the woods as autumn leaves fall


Mother Earths fall celebration lies before us

A time for turning inward

The days grow shorter

the night grows colder


The flames from the fireplace

Rekindle a passion for ideas

Embers fertilize seeds of change

A harvest awaits us


Unity between ourselves and Mother Earth

Creating balance in our lives

Harmony in natural ways

A sacred entity


The autumnal equinox

The first day of fall

An equal duration of day and night

Mother Earth's natural rhythms


We welcome fall with colors gold

Every leaf in the forest

Every blade in the field

Nature erupts in all her glory.

Autumn is a Second Spring

      Fall is my favorite season of the year as the summer heat turns into those cooler crisper days and the leaves turn color in a magical display of beauty. I love this poem.

      Spring and fall...my favorites as they whisper and portend of all the beauty in change and promise. I love this poem, Audrey, and how "Autumn is a Second Spring." Just perfect. :-)

      Fall must be Mother Nature's way of showing off. No other season brings so much beauty. Thanks my friend.

      Fall is my favorite season. You highlight some of the best things about it -- the color, the coziness, and the settling in.

      Beautiful! Your poem makes me think of Keats' Ode to Autumn. I love every opportunity I get to experience fall, my favorite season.

      Dear Mary

      I've lived in areas that don't get seasons. But there are lovely paintings and photos to draw from. One of the pieces I love to play on the piano is "The Four Seasons".

      Thanks Mary. My best to you.

      So happy to know you survived hurricane Harvey. I sometime wonder if nature rebels in the form of hurricanes, tornados and such. I love your beautiful comments!

      Lovely seasonal poem. 'Harmony in natural ways' is a beautiful line.

      We don't get seasons where I live, only wet or dry. It is one of the things I miss about a temperate climate.

      Rain is predicted here today after a torrid summer. The grape leaves are turning color. The berries are done ripening. Yes, fall is here, despite what the calendar says. Lovely poem my friend.

      Audrey, I always dread the arrival of Autumn; to me there is sadness in the season when all of nature withers and slumbers, preparing for the death of winter.

      Your perspective is so joyful. I will try to hold onto those thoughts, a lovely poem indeed. Thank you.

      It is a melancholy time for me. I live in the coastal desert and there is very little fall compared to what I grew up with at 7,000 feet.

      In fact I am doing some planting.

      Thank you for this wonderful piece with wonderful pictures. It is very well done.
