I Love Fall–a poem by Dedra Davis

I love fall.

~a poem by Dedra Davis

I love fall.

I love fall.

The way it streams in the windows with the sun dancing on the floor.

The way the sun is begging to be invited in.

I love fall the way the leaves are more on the ground than in the trees,

and allow more light to filter through for you.

I love fall.

I love fall.

The way the temperatures drop ever slightly.

I love fall because the humidity is replaced with freshness;

the air is not as heavy against your face.

I love fall.

I love fall.

The way the leaves dance with the trees.

They dance and sway to nature’s tune that only they can hear.

I love fall.

I love fall.
Austin Avenue, downtown Waco, in the fall

There is a new color scheme that takes over the earth. Mother nature redecorates for the new season.

I love fall the way the colors of summer are replaced with golden hues and it all seems new.

It’s as if the earth changes the blankets and pillows on the couch for fall.

I love fall.

I love fall.

The outside seems more inviting as we enjoy autumn’s festivities. Nature invites us outside by luring us to fresh, golden beauty and the fresh, crisp air.

I love all the feels of fall.

I love fall.

I love fall

Today,  for the #write31days writing challenge, I wrote a poem.  I used to write poems in college and thought I would try it again.  I hope you liked it.  Simple and sweet.  And short.

One day, I will publish my poems in a blog post.

I love fall; the way the leaves dance with the trees. #ilovefall Click To Tweet

Fall Naps-When You Should Give In And Rest

Napping is a great art form. Naps are taken by all ages. All creatures. Taking a nap on a cool fall afternoon is a wonderful luxury and should be afforded by all.

Fall afternoons and naps seem to go hand in hand.

Football In The Fall-The Sounds Of Fall

Fall has many aspects.  Fall has many feels. Fall means many things to me–pumpkins, fall weather, fall candles, and football.

In my blog series for #write31days writing challenge, titled Thirty-One Days Of Fall Feels, I have written about the sights, tastes and all the fall feels. I even covered the smells of Fall in my post about fall candles.

Today, I am thinking about the sounds of fall.

As I sit in front of my computer, blank screen, thinking what I will write today for the writing challenge, I hear football in the background.

Real Talk-The Ups And Downs Of Blogging

Today, I am being real.  Today, I am being authentic and talking about the stress of blogging in a writing challenge. Today, I am writing about digging deep and the ups and downs of blogging.

I love to write.  It gives me great joy.  But, no matter what activity gives you joy, when it becomes something you must do, have to do, and not something you want to do, that activity can become a dread, a burden.

Real Talk-The Ups And Downs Of Blogging

This is the second year I have participated in the #write31days writing challenge. You have to write and publish a blog post everyday for 31 days.  The month of October.

Pumpkin Patches And Why You Should Visit

Pumpkin patches are a fun activity in the fall. Picking your own pumpkin at a pumpkin patch, no matter your age, gets you in the fall spirit. If the pumpkin patch is a charity, that fall spirit can be doubled.

Visiting a pumpkin patch is a visual treat.  The rows and rows of orange orbs is a delight for any eyes. It is a lot more fun to buy your pumpkins at a pumpkin patch and not in a pile at the grocery store.

As Summer Folds Into Fall-Texas Falls into Autumn

There is a mixture of summer and fall today. As one season folds into the next, blending the best of both seasons and creating this golden, colorful fall day.

 

Yes, Fall is in the air this morning. She came to Texas a few days ago and I am welcoming this long, lost friend. Fall only comes for short visits in Texas, and most years, is the last guest to sit at the table. Some years, fall misses Thanksgiving dinner altogether and skips right into the Christmas season. Rude.

Not today, today is a fall day in Texas.

Remembering Memories Of Halloween Past

Memories of Halloween past and Halloweens gone by, consist of family, friends and lots of kids.  Halloween is a fun and safe holiday for the kids, especially when parents are involved.

We raised our kids in a small town, twenty minutes outside of Waco.  Our kids were friends with our friend’s kids.  Or was it visa-versa?  Doesn’t matter because there was always fun to be had for the grownups, as well as the children.

Remembering Memories Of Halloween Past

Memories of Halloween past make me smile.
