Autumn: A visible tapestry of time

I love the melancholy ways of Fall
It's more than just the annual rusted quilt that beds my weary, summer-scorched yard.

It's the smell of the damp.

The thrill of the dawn and the creeping of dusk.

Enough of this boisterous summer, with it's flashy cars, muscle shirts and teenagers possessing the landscape.

Let them be set aside for a moment of unspoken soliloquy... for the earthly hush, and mature introspection of Autumn.

It’s the texture of fall that gets in my nose.

It’s a visible tapestry of time.

You remember when life was conceived; you had your moment in the sun, and you can taste the cold coming.

It's what happens between "the yesterday" and "the tomorrow".
Summer is for amateurs and screamers.

Fall is for those confident enough to know that the sun is shining somewhere.

It's the unseen and under-touched.
