ahahaha i suppose not :))))))))))))))
dearest Pryde... I know people who mingle like this...
the autumn is like a pipe organ... the mournful sounds...
the emotions gather to enjoy the weather beaten prologues of
lovers lament. My Mother pressed lovely leaves into semi-dried clay
to preserve the pattern of the veins and then she baked them in a kiln...
and when they were dry, she painted them in colors of red and gold
with shadows of lavender blue. We treasure the autumn of our life and
press the memories into poetry. I think I shall never see trees as gregarious
as your poem with the evergreens wishing they too could change their
colors and bed under the Oak and Maple trees and sleep all Winter
under feather pillows and woolen blankets with fallen leaves from other climates
where French is spoken with the purpose of romantic rendezvous. truly, Pat

Thank you, Pat:) So glad you enjoyed:)
Ah, on seeing the topic, I had to check and indeedly do, you're Canadian (so if you're Canadian, why isn't it called Canadia? And most importantly of all, why tree juice on your pancakes?)
Anyhoo, now that I've said what you must have heard a million times, onto your wonderful write.
You seem to have tuned into 8 year old me, who always imagine trees screaming as they done their slow strip tease, looking down at their roots and cursing their lack of feet to run away from their leaf genocide, whilst wondering why we keep smiling at their pain, as we take pictures of their suffering for posterity. (yeah, que surprise that I was also odd as a kid😀)
You have given voice to what we see as an inanimate object (although we know better) and I like the playfulness opposing your wonderful descriptions and beautiful words on what I imagine to be another breathtaking sight of mother natures dance through the seasons... But I think I'll stick with marmalade thanks 😀

Thank you, Neville. Our lovely maple will be born again, not to worry:)
Great idea. Everything is envious of everything. Explains a lot. Great idea, executed well.

Even in nature, you've discovered the green envy, Pryde. It seems we all want what others have, not seeing the beauty and blessings in our own makeup. A clever and original take on autumn, the seasons of life, and our accompanying moods.

The evergreens, tho possibly jealous, provide a perfect backstop for the brilliant fall maple
They line our driveway with their bright color each fall
very effective presentation
