I was just at the library and on my way out I saw something so inviting I had to take a detour instead of going right to the car.
Beside the library is an expanse of grass. I believe it’s considered a park, but there’s nothing there. It’s just an open area with a few trees.
The trees were almost bare and the ground was covered in thousands of leaves, all gold and brown and orange and red, an exact image of what you’d expect Autumn to be.
I walked over and just wandered around taking it in. The leaves crunched as I walked on them. As I got among the trees a huge gust of wind picked up and the leaves swirled all around me. Quintessential Autumn.
In the distance there was a man and woman and three little kids. They were running around catching leaves and shouting, having the greatest time.
As the wind blew it didn’t blow all the leaves away, it created a beautiful ripple of leaves that started where I was and moved across the ground toward them.
It was so wonderfully beautiful and peaceful.
I wish I could have stayed longer but I had to get to campus. I might go back tomorrow.
