signs of fall

rain pelts at my windows
it bounces and spatters on the ground
puddles form all around
it’s perfect for jumping in and splashing

wind rustles all the leaves
that cling so ferociously to the trees
while multi-colored leaves already
lay haphazardly on the ground

pumpkin-filled porches are everywhere
children excitedly deciding on their costumes
while the scent of cinnamon and clove
wafts ever so gently on the air

it’s a time to snuggle ‘neath the warm blanket
for savoring the glow of the fireplace
with a book in one hand
and a mug of warm tea in the other

oh yes,
I do love
