Autumn

in the tall grass

the start of feathery plumes –

new sign of autumn

New Coolness

This morning is especially gray. I open the door to the lushness of my garden that is still mostly green. I am greeted by a pair of butterflies dancing around the blooms of the butterfly bush. A welcome sight. As I step outside cupping my mug of tea, I note that it is cooler than I thought. It feels like autumn has taken hold.

new coolness

butterflies brighten gray as
autumn calls

blood red skies

resolute warning –
