The Change




The Change

edges crisp
form parched and mottled
the brittled bloom yields

gone ablaze
as autumn descends


under goblin’s feet
horse’s hooves
wagon wheels

the fragrance of straw
spiced cider
hollowed gourds

summer’s ebbed

I feel the change

    Yes in my neck of the woods it is Autumn — but I love this season. My University of Oregon Ducks start playing football, Halloween is just around the corner, then Thanksgiving — and the crowning celebration for me is Christmas… I love this particular season. People try to reach down into their heart and find a little love — even if they are feigning it… it at least puts it on their mind, and that’s a good thing!

    Thank you for your kind words… 😉
