My attempt to capture some essence of autumn...
|Autumn on firework mountaintop dances;
russet mum flowers catch last chilly glances…
sunshine turned low for a fire-filled pause;
frost comes descending on whispers of gauze.
Landscapes explode on a page dipped in gold,
bursting from jade into burgundy cold;
candle in pumpkin, all emptied of seeds;
October walks hurried, unsure where she leads.
Hayrides and hauntings on harvest moon nights;
sunrise balloon rides and wind-guided kites;
each fall is fresh; ever new, we discover
a year’s culmination, our terminal lover.
