Crisp Autumn Day

A September chill pierces the morning
cutting through my open window.
Sharp air nips past naked ankles
as Autumn nibbles into my day.

Wasps sift September with regret
buzzing the fading scent of roses.
Tart apples sweep mellow branches
savouring a wind sweetened rain.

Chestnut burrs bristle spiny green
pregnant with mahogany clusters.
Crumpled leaves huddle in garden corners
crunching crooked for warmth.

    Very descriptive and beautiful Today on the first day of fall, we had the warmest day of the year. We didn't have much of a summer. I know the rains will come soon and the fall winds but today was a beautiful summer day. Congratulations on your win. Love, Joyce
