chill arrives
twirling like white spine,
with each puff
stringed leaves coil
on embroidered trellises--
trimmed by russet tips

while moon hides,
gale spills fragrant mint
and bright dew,
touching skin
of buds charmed ,as autumn wind
encircles a dance

through waft's chimes
petals tip ballet
down wet lanes,
flaunting  hues
dyed in fall’s velvet doilies--
casting season's spell!
