Poetry Sunday-Turning To Fall



Turning To Fall



As Summer turns her face to Fall

The birds, the bees, the butterflies call.

Eat, drink and fly for all too soon-

The cooler winds will blow past the Harvest Moon.

A few year’s ago, as I watched summer turning to fall these words struck me.  Autumn comes early here, and this year the ash trees were beginning to turn yellow by the third week in August.  But recent temps in the low 90s, humidity and lack of rain kept us in summer for a couple of weeks longer.  Now we are getting just a taste of cooler fall weather.




I am joining in with Poets United for their weekly poetry link up for poets who blog.  Visit them to read some more wonderful verse.

I am also linking in with the I Heart Macro meme hosted by Laura@Shine The Divine that happens every Saturday.



If you enjoy reading this blog, I welcome you to share it with others. I enjoy spreading the blog love, and I appreciate all who come and read my blogs. 







Special Note:  The moon pictures of last year’s Harvest Moon.  As I have only a point and shoot without a tripod, these are not the clearest pictures, but I enjoyed the challenge of shooting them none-the-less.




I leave you with a few additional words about summer turning to fall.  I welcome you to download the photo and share it.

  1. I have noticed some signs of impending fall here too….the crispness in the air, the bright blue of the sky, and even some brown leaves along the path I walk regularly.

  2. your blogs background pic reminds me of someplace i’ve been.

    wonderful reflection of the season’s transition. love the fall but dread the cold and snow especially as my body’s age becomes more manifest.

    lovely and gracias for sharing

  3. I saw the squirrels collecting nuts.. and yes that’s another sign, the darker evenings another.. wonderful with the moon above though

  4. we have early autumn and late autumn where I stay, two distinctly different seasons one has partly gray and partly blue sky and is hot & the other’s deep blue sky a and a nip in the air…now we’re passing through the first phase….a lovely poem as always Donna….

  5. That is true summer is leaving and fall will arrive. I see it in the trees and sky. The sunlight is diminishing each day. You have captured the shift of season well. Try and enjoy the last days of summer 🙂

  6. The harvest moon is so beautiful and brings the bounty of Autumn ~ trees have turned yellow here, too, and the cooler, rainy weather has actually been a relief from the hot, dry and humid. Every season has a purpose and reason for being. I do love Fall though will miss Summer until it comes back again in the beautiful cycle of nature. Lovely post, Donna.

  7. Succinct and evocative, It set me dreaming. I love fall. And even the first two months of winter are wonderful. Then I scrolled down to where you combined poem and picture. Very nice indeed. Thank you for this poem and your deep comment on mine.
