An Ochre October – Sunday Stills

For Terri’s Sunday Stills: October’s color is ochre, a brownish yellow, as shown above, but can range from yellow to deep orange. Perfect for showcasing your Fall colors!

Leaves begin their fall color change in October Shugakuin, Kyoto, Japan
Standing tall in October Zion National Park, Utah, USA
The ochre sunrise in October, Waikiki, Oahu, Hawaii, USA

The wind blows scattering dry leaves
and sending the trees dancing
leaves make their annual wardrobe change
from vibrant gold to somber ochre
dry grass prickles my feet
breathe in the musty smells of old oak
listen as the earth sighs her contentment
cloaked in the wonder of the season
I pause in anticipation … Autumn

Til next time ~Peace ~JP
