Autumn joy

Autumn is a time

Of flamboyance;

Flamboyant

When anything is possible —

Like flaming leaves glowing in the light of the rising sun

On an outdoor barbecue.

Barbecue

And, of course, it’s a time

For play in the autumn leaves

(This is Ruby.)

Autumn joy

And the exuberance of a swim

Amid the autumn joy.

(This is my goofball, Simmie.)

Joy

For more happy moments, please visit: Our World.
