Colored leaves in crisp fall air
Yellows, reds and burnt orange
Seasonal change, natural evolution,
Breathing in pleasantly lighter air
Lower humidity in summer’s wake.
Walking amongst fall flower beds
Chrysanthemums, multicolored pansies
Tiered gardens in front of mansion homes,
Abundant acorns have fallen from trees
Scurrying squirrels are becoming fatter.
Temperatures begin race toward freezing
With people ensconced in layered clothes
Seem having started looking deeper inward,
Changes in evidence everywhere to be seen
As summer transitions to winter’s prelude.
Sun is still streaking across the sky
Morning yellows, evening oranges
Remains constant in every season,
Peaceful feelings in fall transformation.
