Autumn has come

Also published and shared on: Thursday Poets Rally of Hyde Park

Autumn ... yeah that's my season. I love the colors, the scent of decomposing leaves. I love the autumn weather ... heavy rains, thunderstorms and the strong winds. The days becoming shorter, cosiness returns to the living room. Wow! What a wonderful season. And than ... the awesome moon of autumn. As you may know I am a bit a Japan addict and they say that the moon of autumn is the most wonderful moon of the year. I like that thought ... ah! the moon ...

autumn has come
leaves re-painted by Mother Earth -
she ... the moon ... lovely

she ... the moon ... lovely
hiding behind a veil of clouds
what a mystery

what a mystery
the cosiness of the living room
autumn has come

I am also an Autumn or Fall lover and the colors of the leaves always leave me breathless. Just talking about Fall I swear I can smell the leaves, the air with that special scent it has that shouts it's time for the hot chocolate, the cider and the harvest dance.
I also love Japan and many of her customs and stories. The moon is a beautiful creation in itself, but the Japanese believe that a marriage will be good if the couple is blessed by the moon so during the Moon Festival the couples are out just looking at the moon praying that their marriage will be blessed by the man in the moon.
I loved your piece; I thought it was warm and just completely described my favorite of all season.
Praying you have a wonderful and blessed week.
