Welcome Fall

On our Mediterranean island we do not witness the fantastic display of the leaves changing colour with the season changing from summer to fall. But here we do have other signs that sing to our senses. After the hot, humid and stifling summers I always long for autumn (fall) and when the first signs are seen, felt and enjoyed, I always hope the season is here to stay since summer seems to try and linger through this season right into the first part of our winter!

No leaves are falling
No magnificant change of colours
But I can feel a certain lull in the air:
the change is coming...
With a pitter patter of rain
Coming down my window pane,
The unmistakable scent of the first downpour
Refreshes the stifled summer air
As it turns slightly chilly,
Bidding the season farewell,
Refreshing my soul
Giving me hope that summer is fading away.
Welcome fall ~ please stay!
