Another Autumn

Another Autumn

written by: Linda Dobinson



Another September.
The end of another summer.
Hot days long as dreams
when every dream seemed possible.
Now a sudden cold fills the air
and dreams shrink with the days.

Another October.
The mid-autumn sun shines warm.
Little red berry jewels
accessorize the dull green leaves.
In the air a stillness –
a pause in the transition
from summer to winter.

Another November to remember.
Night grows bolder by the day,
day becomes more changeable.
This morning’s grey gave way
briefly to brilliant blue.
Then clouds returned to look down
on an explosion of yellow leaves
that carpet the ground.
Branches now thin and bare
look like spent sparklers
waving in the air.
