Today while walking on a street in this crowded city I have this strange feeling to see the leaves of the trees still green and it is the end of
It should be autumn but it looks like summer.
For days now or maybe months I see no gust of wind among the leaves of the trees still green.
The wind doesn't speak anymore.
It's like the clock of the nature has stopped.
Only the rushing and running of the people seems to be the same.
Or maybe nature run faster than humans, but they do not realize in their mad rush
It's like the humans and nature doesn't talk anymore to each other and they have different dreams although they share the same bed...planet Earth.
Because their eyes are blind to stop and see nature's final countdown.
Sometimes I see a tremor of a frail branches full of green leaves and my heart throbs thinking that that is a breath of wind., but not actually it is
a rare bird flying through the green crown of a tree.
Oh yes the birds ,very rare these days I don't see many and what is very strange is that I didn't hear their song for a long time now.
Where are the birds!,I wish I knew.
it's like the entire world has stopped.
Looking to the skies no cloud to see, almost everyday and it's happening also for months.
Just the Sun is shining very powerful in the sky with more power then ever.
A silent Sun.
And in this silence I feel like I can hear the winds from Jupiter blowing...if any!
Or I feel the frozen darkness from Pluto.
Like the entire solar system has stopped...for months now.
Multi coloured leaves on the trees (proper autumn / winter).
Just today, so far we have had fog, wind, rain, snow (and a bit of sun too). Ok, not proper snow, more that pathetic stuff that won't settle and
instead melts instantly but still, it counts in my book.
In other words, no sorry. Definitely all change (rather than standstill) in my neck of the woods.
Giving you a star anyway because that was quite beautifully written.

The deciduous trees where I am in FL (yes, we have them) are changing colors & dropping. My friends in the NE are posting some absolutely stunning
photos of their trees' colors lately. Yesterday, a friend in PA showed one of the most mind-numbingly astounding pictures of their area, full of
shades of yellows, oranges and reds. Absolutely breath-taking.
I will concede that the deciduous in my area are changing a tad later than normal, but they are changing. Are you in the south/deep south, OP? Maybe
you're in a pocket area slow to catch up with the rest of the regional area?
