Autumn II

An American Sentence.

Autumn II
“Aprils have never meant much to me, autumns seem that season of beginning, spring.” ― Truman Capote, Breakfast at Tiffany’s

The first cool day of autumn, I sat and watched the clouds in the blue sky.

    I’ve always thought of autumn as spring’s better dressed sister. And the blue sky you describe is one of the reasons why. Hats and pumpkins, too. 😁

      Yeppers. Much better dressed. It is finally cool down here – today will get into the mid-70’s and tonight will be in the low 60’s. Blue sky is on of the kigo for Haiku. The sky in the fall is the purest and bluest it will be all year. Aki no sora….I love the blue sky of autumn the most.

    Mmm…when the air is crisp, wearing a cozy sweater with a cup of tea in hand…oh yes, the autumn sky in the afternoon is worth taking the time to appreciate.

    We, of course, are in Spring here – but I agree with you, autumn is the most beautiful season (even here where we don’t get a lot of coloured leaves) and its skies the most beautiful of all.

    Lovely, brilliant blue sky, Toni. I could just picture you gazing into it admiring the blue with the wispy clouds. Enjoy the rest of your favorite season!

    Summer feeds us with its fruit and Autumn with its beauty lures us into Winter that holds us in its cold grip till frivolous Spring dances with us ’til Summer again.

    Autumnal clouds are different than summer clouds – perhaps its the change of temperature but the blue of the sky seems different to me as well.
