Now Is The Time of Year When…

Standard

Now is the time of year when…

Sweaters become jackets 

Hoodies morph into hats

Now is the time of year when…

The Sun shines through the trees turning yellow leaves into the gold you know must be in Heaven

Leaves of bright red turn crimson with the setting Sun and dropping temperatures 

Now is the time of year when…

A daughter’s first decade is celebrated  with a store bought ice cream cake 

And a feast of thanks giving celebrated on the same day

Now is the time of year when…

You’re usually brisk walk to the train station or bus stop is made even quicker from the sting of the cold

Now is the time of year when…

You damn yourself for not  carrying the little packet of tissues you just bought 

As you hold your head skyward  to hold in the snot

And thank the Heavens for the Autumn you witness…
