October in Ontario

October in Ontario offers photo ops at every turn!

(click on collages to enlarge)

October shimmers
And glimmers and laughs
Scattering love-poems
On worn garden paths

October whooshes
And swooshes and grieves
Winnowing Nature’s
Umbrella of leaves

October dances
And prances, its looms
Weave ballerinas
In rainbow ball-rooms

October shivers
A quiver of frost
Glazes the flowers   
Of sweet summer-lost

October dashes
And splashes and wails
Running its rain-song
Through rose-colored sails

October quiets
A riot of bloom
Leaving a bouquet
Of leaves on earth’s tomb

    1. Hi Poppy,

      thank-you.
      Don't you think the colors this year are exceptionally vivid?! I make excuses for errands just to go on extra sight-seeing jaunts because one wind-rain storm can change it overnight!

      Happy Week-end to you too.
