A New Season

Around us leaves begin to fall
Paying heed to winter's call
Shades of gold and red and green
Play their parts in nature's scene.

Another season draws to a close
Captured elegantly in poem or prose
And puts a smile upon our face
As each new season we embrace

Written for One Shot Wednesday


  1. Love your response to the autumn colors and season.

  2. fall seems to go the fastest for me...already winter knocks on teh door and i just want to wrap myself in teh colorful leaves and leave the door locked. nice one shot!

  3. Embracing each season is the way to finding happiness, of that, I agree. Lovely One Shot!
