Slipping Into Fall

 Across the waves of water and clouded skies, she whispers all day and into the night until her voice rises to a mothering roar. She calls to the oaks and maples to pack away their summer bags. She tells the squirrels and chipmunks it’s time to fill the cellar. She cautions the bear and deer to remember to wear their overcoats. She tells the geese and hummingbirds to lift their wings and come on home. Mama warns her babies to grab a blanket and slip into  something comfortable because  change is coming.

Seasonal

The autumn leaves drift like butterflies in the wind coloring our world.
