Autumn Stories-- Day 5

Just a quick something I wrote about the change of the seasons: 


I watched her leave tonight. She proudly gathered up her things and gave me a sweet breeze of a kiss on my forehead. She smelled of roses and sweet dry grass. As she spoke, her voice was like a bubbling spring.
"Remember me," she said. "I'll be back before you know it." Her smile was like a warm beam of sunshine. I suddenly felt sleepy.
As she drew away, I felt a sharp pain along the back of my neck, an unpleasant pins and needles sensation that I had not felt for some time: cold. The cold meant only one thing.
Autumn was coming.
Sure enough, there he was-- majestic and glorious, yet gruff and stern, garbed in a bright array of colors. He hustled her along, leading her away. She turned and waved to me over her shoulder, and already I felt an ache of longing. I missed her already. But I must be brave.
Forcing a smile, I waved goodbye to Summer.

      It's too bad that you don't have autumn in your country. But I'm sure you have other things that are even more beautiful. :)

    Hope you're enjoying Autumn!
