Autumn gold

Autumn gold 

on TV - the weather – guy 
predicted enthusiastically

a lot of sun and a blue sky
beautiful warm late summer days 
during the upcoming autumn break

he did not know
for sure
he did not lie
probably

the ticking on the window
sings a different song
the clouds are sharing 
nothing but rain

I have to go out
before the rain stops
into that wet world
into the cold

would it help
if I remembered
would it be different 
if I could touch
the autumn leaves
made of sunny  gold

    Nice touch; it seems so alive. I can almost feel the rain because it is cloudy outside. Thanks for the visit.

    What a polite way of commenting on the often inaccurate predictions of the weatherman! I enjoyed it.
