Autumn Years - Thursday Think Tank Prompt 15

Poets United holds a weekly poetry prompt.
This weeks prompt is autumn 

                                                              Autumn Years

I'm in my autumn now
with russets and golds rich in my palette
and the warmth and comfort of their hues
fold around me
as I welcome this season
joyous
and with open arms.
