pumpkins on the shelf
a new season takes shape
orange hues of autumn
gone in the misty morning
winter came too soon
chill in the air
crunchy leaves at our feet
halloween no more
crisp leaves, bonfires
smell of pumpkin in the air
autumn nights return
Between the golden hues of fallen leaves and the smell of fresh baked apple-cinnamon in the air, Autumn is more than just a season, it’s a force in the universe, with the power to bring back memories, compel lovers to take chances, and motivate people to nurture their creative side.
Autumn wraps around people like a warm blanket, sometimes reminding them of happier times in childhood or giving them hope towards the future. Like the trees that shed their leaves, preparing for winter’s coat, people lose the inhibitions that hold them back, allowing themselves to experience the joys of the holidays and all that life has to offer.
Autumn is a time of reflection, a time of nature, a time of wonder and a time to spend with loved ones and friends. So, this fall, reconnect with an old friend or go visit a family member you haven’t seen in a while. Go for a long walk in the park or the forest. Pick out a pumpkin at a pumpkin farm. Take up a new hobby or make some crafts. Or, create a bucket list and have fun checking each item off.
Truman Capote once wrote, “Aprils have never meant much to me, autumns seem that season of beginning, spring.”
Autumn truly is the best season.
Bucket lists aren’t just for millennials and old people. Bucket lists, or seasonal to-do lists, motivate us to try new experiences, learn new things, explore the world around us, meet new people or catch-up with old friends and get in touch with our inner child.
Autumn is the best time of year to reminisce and create new memories. So, find yourself a fall bucket list or create one of your own, and make this an autumn to remember.
Next month, I’ll share a special Halloween bucket list.
