It is early morning and the splash of color in the sky – a gift of sunrise. This second august day is cooler, more breathable than in previous days. It seems that autumn has stuck it’s big toe in.
I know it’s still a bit early for this but images of autumn leaves surfing crisp cool air fill my head. As I pass an especially woodsy area of this park, there is a steady breeze.
This is enough for a pause with outstretched arms, head tilted back and eyes closed, regardless of who is watching.
cool, breezy morning
hosts lively russle of leaves –
hints of autumn

noon day sun struggles
to fuse through stark autumn gray
a stillness clings fast –
massing onto bare branches
the silhouettes of black birds

marred by lush flights of fancy
with no path to grace

frolick here and there
free at last
autumn hues –
splash of color
chasing the blues
waves of yellow leaves
scurry across asphalt
steady breeze at their backs
autumn has come
last bloom of my red rose
undaunted by this cold wet day –
a steady autumn rain
