It’s time for Pensieve’s Poetic License – and the subject is one I can really get behind and write about – AUTUMN. This is my 2nd favorite time of year! I just love it! I won’t say too much, I’ll let the poetry do the talking. Having said that – I don’t think I can write just one!


Colorful costumes: red, orange, and yellow.

Heralded by the first cool breeze,

As summer’s heat begins to mellow.

The winds of change blow through the trees-

Softly, Autumn comes and summer flees.

Here’s my 2nd, another variation of the Cinquain – this one focusing on “the harvest.”


Ready, Abundant

Waiting, Maturing, Bowing

Roll up your sleeves, it’s ripe for the picking


I probably shouldn’t point this out, but you can read that last one with either the physical autumn harvest or the spiritual harvest as the subject. Does it ruin it for me to say that? 😉

Okay, and I’m going to throw in a Wordle — with all this talk about Wordles, which I have seen before but never MADE. For your viewing pleasure: my Autumnal Wordle (because I just can’t fit this many words into a Cinquain!)

Hey, y’all! I'm Amber, and I wear many hats: Pastor's wife, marriage advocate, eclectic homeschooler, mother of three, and domestically challenged homemaker--lovin’ life and livin’ deep in the heart of Texas.
I love to write and I hope to use that wisely, to encourage others, and for God’s glory. I seek purpose in the mundane. I want my kids to see God’s fingerprints throughout all of creation, learning, and life. As I teach our children, God is teaching me through this homeschool journey, too. I love Jesus, family, coffee, words, and the color teal.
