    The change of seasons is almost here

    Autumn

    Nearing August’s end, cloud’s carrying
    Swollen turbulent rains to gritty soil sail
    Into September; leaf trading, dry dusted
    Green for brittle yellow and wine red; orange
    Moon, suspended throughout October,
    With firework intensity for curtailed cooling days.

    A distracting sleight of hand, obscuring
    Knobbed and stripped boughs; the humbled
    Lords of long days, grey-white at November’s
    Start, stand naked; next year’s tribute to rain cycles
    And seedlings.

    Very Nice; I normally catch a few brook trout at home when the weather turns in the fall, as well as a few pheasant/ruffed grouse. I miss those days. . .
