Another smell of autumn
sweet sweet smell
of Concord grapes
warming ripening
ready to burst with flavor
strong urgent smell
lured me closer
spreading outward
from the makeshift arbor
a plume twenty feet wide
enticing, coaxing
me to linger
luxuriate in its aroma
smile at the memory
of other pickings
long ago
Sweet fruit
high above me,
out of reach
up in the canopy
formed by wire and bush

Smell of Autumn by Raymond A. Foss

Oh yes, the sweetest ones always out of reach, at least for me, but not wasted - the yellow jackets get them and appreciate them...

Very nice poem about fall. Oh, yes the biggest oranges and the first to ripe apples are on the top of the trees. Lol, talking about smells of autumn. Some years we've had an over abundance of apples, they fall to the ground and ferment and our whole yard smells like hard cider.
