Autumn Leaves and Changes

The Autumn leaves are gracefully falling from the sky

in vibrant colors of golds, yellows, oranges, and reds

the brisk morning breeze pushing them to fly

into the abandoned Spring garden beds

Garden scarecrows looming out of the leaf-covered ground

with black as night crows resting on their wooden arms

the harvest of pumpkin patches delivered to farm barns

purchased for homemade pumpkin pie by the pound

Chilly cold weather-ready for hoodies, sweaters, and campfires

telling scary tales and roasting fluffy marshmallows

friends drive up in their pickup trucks leaves crunching under the tires

children running outside kicking up piles of leaves bursting in colorful reds and yellows

The cold months of October, November, and December are at last here

traditions playing out through Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Halloween

Witches, goblins, monsters, and ghosts are nothing to fear

oven baked Christmas sugar cookies embellished in red and green.

    What a beautiful way to describe Christmas. I can smell it and see it through your words. I love Christmas, but I love how you captured the cookies in your poem even more.
