… The Autumn Fairy arrived,
flying In just that very special way of Autumn fairies everywhere,
at first barely noticed so gentle and delicate her entrance.
She dipped and turned
rustling the plants and leaves,
encouraging others to fall, as is her nature.
She swept past with swirling winds,
and I heard the leaves giggling …
tickled by her playful breeze ,
winging her way through nature’s remaining summer beauty.
“Autumn”, the fairy’s wings a fluid motion of colours
blending and merging into glorious cacophony.
I sighed with wonder
so very many changing colors and patterns
and then out of the far corner of my eye I saw her
… a vision of beauty passing thru
leaving the splendor of fallen leaves
and those following in her wake.
A quickness, a warming gentleness
and then a newness, a crispness to the air,
“Autumn” the fairy departing
I hear the crunch of fallen leaves as I walk through.
There is a cooling crispness in the air
I now await the coming of the Winter fairy
I know she cannot be far behind.

Luckily for me I was there with sketchbook in hand and captured the autumn fairy for all to see! Be safe this weekend my friends, thanks for stopping by.
