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. :-)

Thank you Terrie Lynn. This means so much to me. Take care.
Fall must be Mother Nature's way of showing off. No other season brings so much beauty. Thanks my friend.

Beautiful! Your poem makes me think of Keats' Ode to Autumn. I love every opportunity I get to experience fall, my favorite season.
Audrey Hunt (author) from Idyllwild Ca. on September 09, 2017:
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!
Mary Wickison from Brazil on September 09, 2017:
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.
Jay C OBrien from Houston, TX USA on September 09, 2017:
Looking forward to Autumn after Hurricane Harvey.
I look forward to the day we are Humane to Humanity.
We are all One in Race,
One Source for All religions is recognized,
All Prophets, though flawed, are from the One Source,
No fighting, or hatred or war.
Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on September 09, 2017:
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.
Linda Lum from Washington State, USA on September 09, 2017:
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.
Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on September 09, 2017:
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.
