My reflections on Autumn
« on: November 07, 2018, 09:39:43 AM »
Autumn

Cool air seeps into the night
Red leaves drop to take their flight
And misty breath steams the air
Speaking death without a care

A harvester's moon shines down
Casting its light with a frown
While the living strive for life
The frost soon cuts like a knife

The softness of Mother Earth
Turns cold with her bitter mirth
The sound of a frigid brook
Sweeps Autumn leaves to a nook

But is this truly the end
No more life is left to spend
All is silent and gone deep
One day to wake from its sleep

Richard E.

Now get out and drive before it's too late!

"Low she sits on five spoke wheels
Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

Unless you are in sunny Florida and get attacked by Canadian snowbirds.

Fall and Autumn.  Still waiting for the coconut palm trees to change color, but they fail to do so every year.   8)

Yes, but after Fall, you gentlemen miss a white Christmas with three feet of snow and Jack knifing tractor trailers and hundred car pile ups and cold engines with dead batteries and underinflated tires because of contracting air in the tires and shoveling snow also known as heart attack snow and thick cumbersome winter coats and freezing ears and feet and steamy glasses from entering any warm building and if you work in the city then freezing at a train platform or slipping and falling on accumulated ice formations not to mention (but I will), the salted roads that eat cars alive in but a few short years.

Missing my nice climate on that map.  There may be snow on top of one of our mountains but where I am it has been up to 82 F by day and down to 73 F at night.  Throw in light 10 to 15 mpph breezes and only a few clouds, it all makes for a pleasant autumn.  Probalbly cool down over the winter months to 78 F by day and 68 F at night.

Unfortunately that causes all those winter bodies from the blue zones on the map to invade us and  to clog our streets and beaches and strain my efforts to stretch the Shelby's legs.   

Gotta put the shades back on now. 8)
