On the Backside of 80, California November

Well, finally some good rains came Nature greens up so well Oppressive heat is gone Bringing Life fresh up, from hell. What to say is wrong… with this Or who it is to fear Cool evenings, colder mornings offer Fall is truly here. I hear the trees, ‘Is this our time to strip and fall Or wait for skies a’thunderin’ For see with me, they dressed in multi-colors Coats of Leaves a’wondering. Well, it is Winter season coming Windy Rains here, instead of snow Some days get cold and nasty Yet good, with AQI’s in 10 belows. Hell, let’s leave Nature get right to it Rest me indoors, It will nurture the dirt To feed the new crops a’coming Depends on what grows here, first. As I... will just facilitate What bees and birds need most No more fancy gardening Looking for selfish Self to boast. Sorting is Nature’s greatest charge In this, She takes little rest No, let Her Nature teach me more of Her Showing balance rules all best.
