100 words: Falling leaves

I watch the leaves falling from the trees as I walk through the woods. Red, orange and yellow leaves separate themselves from the branches one by one. They remind me of children who grow up and leave their parents, just like leaves leave the branches.

Watching the nature dressing itself in vivid colours and the falling leaves makes me sad; it reminds me that my favourite season is coming to an end and that once again I’ll have to wait nine long months for summer to return. I’ll look through the window every day, craving for the long hot summer.

  1. I've seen some leaves starting to turn; an omen of autumn. Sounds like your winter's about as long as mine.

  2. I noticed a few orange and yellow leaves dropping to the road on my bike ride this afternoon. It thoroughly depressed me. I'm not nearly ready for summer to end!

  4. Lovely post that reminds me that I have just turned on the front room light because it is getting darker that bit earlier.

  5. I really hope next summer in the UK is better than this one has been. I'm really not ready for Autumn and Winter, like you I prefer Summer.
