A Knock at the Door from Autumn

Posted 09-28-2010 at 10:02 AM by rodmonster

A Knock at the Door from Autumn

Like clockwork it has arrived,
The distinct scent of vanishing jade.
Leaves dancing as they fall from high,
Vibrantly colored before they fade.


The brisk breeze is dashing all about,
Carrying the plush foliage to-and-fro.
Grand peaks of color encircle the trees,
As the burnt dusk begins to glow.


Seasonal gourds of all sizes and shapes,
Cover vine laden plains as far as one can see.
Shadows cast from the sinking auburn sun,
Via rays of light through the sagging bare trees.


A faint aroma from chimneys afar,
Trickles through the end of the day.
Giving a sense of warmth from deep within,
Evoking childhood memories of yesterday.


As this twilight arrives with a sea of stars,
As it has done each and every year before.
With much content in my tranquil soul,
I welcome Autumn knocking at my door…

My family is a bit weird with Christmas.. My little sister is a bit indifferent, and my Mom, Dad, and little Brother...although EXTREMELY religious (Dad is an Education Minister and Brother is a Youth Minsiter)......don't share the feelings i have for Christmas. They love and respect it from the Biblical sense only and don't like anything else past that point...in fact they don't even put a tree up anymore - more less decorate. The don't like me buying them presents ...etc....get the idea?
As kids - we did have a small tree and we did get a few things though... although my dad had a weird way of doing it. He preferred that the gifts were needed things and as we got older - we had to pay for half of what we wanted so we "learned responsibility and that money does not grow on trees...blah blah blah...". Yes i said we paid for half of many of our gifts....so we kinda knew what we were getting...
Needless to say my kids are a bit spoiled at Christmas - as is my wife...and...
