Autumn Longing

Tiny fingers of cold fold 
curtains back, sneak in stealthily.
Tickle an exposed toe or two,
Run fingers where flesh is free.

Summer rages on with bright fire,
bringing sweat just after dawning...
Before day is over and done,
when weary faces are yawning.

Anticipation dances
in me, for the cool days to come.
When there will be a hazy cowl
to cover the merciless sun.

Golden leaves, and red and gold
will cover lawns for children’s play.
Gardens bring forth their harvest
with healthy food to store away.

Even the Autumn of my life
falls easily on my aging times.
As I, too,  experience growth...
in more benevolent  fall climes.

    A great write my friend! Although autumn is not my favourite season, it is followed by a my least favourite one... another Canadian winter! Have experienced far too many of them!!! However the colours of autumn certainly are magnificent! Hugs, Jack xox
