Autumn's a Smorgasbord for the senses;
sights, sounds, smells and tastes---
the smell of dry leaves as they crunch and crackle underfoot or
when burrowing into a freshly raked leaf pile.
the aroma of burning leaves....

orange, red and yellows,
pumpkins, apples,
pie, and cider
fire in the fire place
and turkey in the oven.
Brisk and bracing,
Wind and rain.

I loved this, your capture of Autumn for the senses. My favorite time of year, where one can find such beauty even in the contrasts, and always something to ignite our words. My write for this week took me to an event of my childhood, but thought I'd share a link to an older piece a bit along the lines of yours: http://insideoutpoetry.blogspot.com/2011/11/quiet-season.html
Thanks for sharing your lovely poem!
