Where Has All The Autumn Gone...

(Long time passing...)

Not that I mind being able to wear shorts and bare feet in sandals on October 1.

Not that I mind the 20+ degrees of Celsius out there.

Not that I mind the sunshine and brilliant blue skies.

But I'm missing autumn.

It's just that, in spite of the sun making the leaves all properly crunchy, if we don't have a cool, crisp autumn,  the onslaught of winter will seem that much harsher.

I need to be acclimatized.

Work my way out of summer slowly.

If autumn passes us by in a blaze of hot, sunshiny glory,

Winter will feel, when it blows in, so, so cold and bleak.

Come back, Autumn. Yours is such a short season to begin with.

Come back.

  1. Oh my gosh, I totally agree!! Autumn is my FAVORITE season and it just doesn't "feel" right the way things are going. Now, if this weather would last, and then have a month of beautiful fall weather, that I'd be happy with.
