A lemon sherbet sky
Brought its chill to the evening
The sun, released from its obligations of the day,
Slipped quickly from sight
As twilight consumed
Trees shivered in Autumn winds
Sending their loose leaves scattering
Laying a carpet of burnt sienna on the cold ground
Darkness came and the earth became silent
A time to reflect on the beauty daylight brings
And allow the night to put it to rest
The glow of a nightlight moon comforts as peace comes

Such a lovely description of the season. Here on the west coast of Canada autumn is being very slow getting started…..I did smell that lovely dead-leaf smell this morning. I love that!
Thank you Sherry. The autumn here in Florida just means warm sunshine instead of burning sunshine 😧😅. I have to write about the season from memories. Lol.
What a lovely way to describe the sky as lemon sherbet.
