Think Tank Thursday #113 Signs of Autumn

I am happy to turn the calendar to September. I long for cooler weather, the colors of autumn and did I say cooler weather, lol.   Summer in the south has felt like being in a sauna.  I am ready for a change.  In my neck of the woods, I am starting to see signs that Mother Earth's mood is changing. Are you?

Autumn Etherealby *alexandre-deschaumes


"Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all."  ~Stanley Horowitz


 " A woodland in full color is awesome as a forest fire, in magnitude at least, but a single tree is like a dancing tongue of flame to warm the heart."  ~Hal Borland


 "There is a harmony in autumn, and a luster in its sky, which through the summer is not heard or seen, as if it could not be, as if it had not been! " 

 ~Percy Bysshe Shelley


 "There ought to be a way to combine "autumn" and "morning" into one word, the combination of the two is special enough to be its own entity." 

 ~Terri Guillemets

  1. Love the pics and quotes, Ella!

  2. Whoops! Only #3 is correct. So sorry!

  3. Fall is my favorite.........beautiful photos and quotes, Ella!!!

  4. Sherry-Fall is my favorite, too! I can't wait to read these :D

    Susan-No big deal, I'll be back to see if I can take it off. I hear thunder and so I'm getting off line...can't wait to read these offerings!

  5. Thanks for this prompt Ella. I love all of autumn's colours, just don't like what follows all too quickly on its heels though. :)

  6. Happy Autumn to you Ella! As you'll see from my poem, no chill for us. Enjoy :-)

  7. Thank you! I took out and brushed off and refreshed an old poem. I will swing by tomorrow and participate in reading all the other offerings. Now I have to go brush up on my pre-algebra in order to help my daughter out. UGH. ;P

  8. Great prompt Ella! Fall is my favorite season. Unfortunately, where I live there are still no signs of it :(.

  9. Ella,

    I too love autumn. The colours and the beauty. So lovely to get out and walk in the hills.

    Thank you for any visits to my poem. I shall reciprocate when I can:)


  10. I enjoy being a part of this circle of poets and I enjoy reading the vast array of poems out there.


  11. since i'm already so late linking in, i hope you don't mind if i come back Sunday to visit others ~ it's 2:30am now. {smile}
