We are going to have breakfast together.
We are going to our childhood neighborhood.
I want to see the trees of my youth in their Autumn color.

I need enthusiasm.
The Oak leaves are turning.
They are beautiful.
Yet I wanted more from Autumn.
I decided I would walk
until I felt the excitement of the season.
I would walk until I saw beyond the color.
from the compost was
in the top of a bare tree was exciting.
I walked for two hours.
Mother Nature never fails me.
I have enthusiasm for this day.

a north western breeze.
I started walking with a hat and jacket on.
The sun and my quick pace
I soon removed my hat so I
could feel the breeze.
My jacket I tied around my waist.
The roses in my neighbor's yard are blooming.
Today I studied the play of green, blue and rust.
I fit in.
Like the trees my colors are changing.

toadstools and mushrooms.
I did not want to step on any.
I love the woods.
I only take away my memories.

The rain let up and stopped.
I grabbed my hat and jacket.

I wasn't going to walk today.
I was not in the mood.
I read your comments.
I put on my shoes.
You encouraged me.
in the Fire bush by the driveway.
He had all sorts of chatter.
He flew from tree to tree as I walked down the street.
I was not alone.

I made a pot of tea and went to the deck.
It was cloudy and cool.
I wrapped up in a blanket.
I did some writing.
I already miss them.
The temperature rose a bit and the sun tried to peek out.
The light was so lovely and the air refreshing.
I walked to the east side of my house.
Here a bed of zinnias and pokeweed grow.
The flowers looked lonely.
I stood and waited.
I was happy to see them.
I stood and watched as they feed.
In flew Mockingbird.
He was after the pokeweed berries.
Mockingbird to the left.
I will walk later.
Today I was a standing stone, with a camera.

A dragonfly was patrolling.
It was shady under the canopy of the trees.
The leaves are just beginning to turn.
I will return next week to gather a few
for my wildflower garden.
I think the butterflies would like it.

The dew so heavy on the grass
I could see my footprints.
Often I stopped to watch the dew rise.
I watched them fly from tree top to tree top.
A Blue Bird flew down onto the pavement urging me on.
He stayed just out of camera's range.
I walked faster hoping to get closer.
climbed the last hill Mr. Blue Bird flew to the top of the tree near my gate.
I stopped and rested for a minute too.
The sun had risen high into the sky.
I felt warm in my sweater.
I was thirsty.
