Candy corn, spiced apple cider,
Pumpkin lattes, caramel apples,
A cat purring in the sunlight that filters through the window blinds,
Goats crunching fallen leaves,
Cinnamon and apple candles,
The change in the things we do...
Time to finish the first cup of coffee before the sun comes up,
A long list of winter preparation "to do's,"
Spider web ninja dances,
Putting the mower away for (hopefully) the last time,
Slowing down and edging off the road for combines,
Straw bales to stack for winter bedding,
Wagon loads of pumpkins,
Chicken tracks in the mud,
