Dripping In Fall

Sometimes I wish it was fall all year long.  You know when you are on a long country drive and you want to go anywhere but home, because you just don’t want the feeling to end? On that road the leaves barrel down towards the window in a storm of auburn rust. One-by-one making their mark, holding on to the outside of the window, showcasing their beauty, individually, before velocity changes their direction. Leaves are the snowflakes of autumn.   They twirl down from the tops of trees, spiraling to the ground, landing in various positions, exposed.  Together they make a tapestry of color on the grass that was not so long ago  lush and green.  In each one you can see a beauty that is unlike any other.  Prior to this they spent chlorophyll-ed days, part of a grandiose beauty, swaying in the warm summer breeze. Now, one by one, they leap begging to be noticed. I know there aren’t enough days in this season to see the complete glory of fall.  One country drive isn’t enough, and that’s why I allow myself to lie on the ground, dripping in fall.

    I love Fall, too. Especially because at some point the lawn stops growing.
