Happy first day of autumn! It’s my favorite season. Some reasons why:
- Cool weather
- Warm drinks
- Pretty leaves
- Gloves, hats, and hoodies
- Free excuse to cosplay
- Yummy fall smells
These are the ugliest pumpkins ever. I’m going to take pictures of the nice orange ones soon.
Crunchy leaves to step on!
The leaves are falling, falling as if from far up,
as if orchards were dying high in space.
Each leaf falls as if it were motioning “no.”
And tonight the heavy earth is falling
away from all other stars in the loneliness.
We’re all falling. This hand here is falling.
And look at the other one. It’s in them all.
And yet there is Someone, whose hands
infinitely calm, holding up all this falling.
Autumn, by Rainer Maria Rilke
