Autumn Reflections

You shouldn’t talk about autumn.
Autumn should be done.

Shuffling through dry leaves
Wading through the mud with your boots
Avoiding falling acorns

Autumn should be smelt

The drizzly sweet smell of soggy moss.
The dirty-but-yet-delicious smell of wet, rotting leaves.
The almost tasty odor of leaking, drooly mushrooms

Autumn should be seen

Magnificent gradients, simply created by leaves, perfectly overflowing from fresh spring green to almost winter brown.
That beautiful soft light, which makes these leaves shine through the trees like early Christmas lights.
Countless mushrooms in shapes that you wouldn’t even imagine.
Some of them looking like candy, as if the candy-man discharged its stock in the forest.
And of course all these creatures, even the ugliest birds, look like top models in an autumn decor!

Autumn should be heard

The restless fluttering of leaves and imminent crunching of branches during a storm.
Only to be interrupted by the thud of a pine cone or broken branch.
Relieved birdsong, when the autumn storms have dried.
And especially this very silent silence, just before an autumn storm blows away this years fall.

Autumn should be felt

I love all seasons, but autumn has this je ne sais quoi,
That magic….
Autumn has atmosphere….
Autumn has…..
…autumn is…
Nuff said!
