Turning Leaves

This week’s photo prompt is provided by Phylor. Thank you Phylor for our photo prompt!

The autumn leaves all red, yellow, brown, orange
And Mother Nature was telling me something
We ran, giggled and into the stream we plunged

People back from holidays busy babbling
Lots of stories to tell and pictures to share
When we meet friends in cafes people watching

Ready for harvest, apples, pumpkins and pears
Children all excited to start the new term
Let them enjoy the term, we say in prayers

Let them learn all the lessons in the long-term
When autumn leaves seem to drown down the stream
Light breaks over the horizon, that’s confirmed

A magnificent season, top of the cream
Autumn at its best and life is such a dream*
