Autumn Menu Sep13 by melodylowes Autumn butters us up, spreads gold on crisply toasted grass to melt beneath a harvest moon; honey stored by busy bees on bold summer evenings sweetens the dry offering with a sheen of liquid gold.

Liquid gold – absolutely. That might describe the whole season.
It has been lovely, hasn’t it?
Hopefully we get a long one.
Every one of these lovely fall days helps to make up for a long winter.
Oh Mel! I only had to read the first 3 words, and I was craving warm buttered toast–and I just finished lunch!! Arrggh That honey sounds really good too–oh dear, I may have just lost the day to eating…..
That food theme seems to keep creeping in… 🙂
Oh beautiful – picture & poem! 🙂
Thank you Rosy!!
Love the ‘sheen of liquid gold’ line to sum up the remnants of summer. Autumn has indeed arrived and the bees have taken their honey to some place else. Lovely, warm poem Melody.
Thanks Rum Punch! Today I’m making salsa and grape jelly to further preserve the summer – in jars on my pantry shelf. 🙂
Ever feel you’re being swaddled in your own sacred manger-lulabye?
hehehe You Do have a way with words. Are you writing these gems down somewhere? 🙂
I don’t see them as gems, just how I feel ~ why don’t you use them by polishing them up? no credit PLEASE ! XO
I may just do that. There can be tons of inspiration in a single phrase or idea – almost like co-writing!
Melody, you’ve made autumn look, taste, and sound delicious to this spring and summer gal! Nicely done!
Blessings ~ Wendy
I have to convince this spring and summer gal of the beauty of this season – it announces winter too cavalierly. But – I think I see just a spark of it! Quick – bottle it up for me! 😉
You certainly had more than your fair share of winter last year…
Um, yeah – and I heard a nasty rumour that there is a prediction for a ‘bitterly cold’ winter this year. Here’s to predictions being incorrect?
