Should it be surprising?

dry leaves falling

temperatures dropping

north wind chilling

flannel shirts comforting

garden beds sleeping

crock pots simmering

cosy boots waiting

snow flurries teasing

daylight decreasing

I’m adjusting as

autumn is yielding

to winter.

One more line ...

daughter counting down

... which seems to be a regular part of fall's closing and winter's coming for me! Simmering crockpots, cosy boots, sleeping gardens ... winter is so peaceful. 34 days until we come!
