Two triolets linked together by three flanking haiku.

the days get shorter as summer gives way to fall change is in the air As leaves descend from limbs above of crimson red and amber gold, they blanket ground with nature’s love. As leaves descend from limbs above, through crisp air wings a mourning dove, and makes her way through fall’s unfold as leaves descend from limbs above of crimson red and amber gold. as sun descends and daylight gives way to darkness an impending chill With shadows long and daylight sighs, the autumn night is thus foretold as harvest moon is on the rise. With shadows long and daylight sighs a time to gaze into her eyes, and seek the warmth within her hold. With shadows long and daylight sighs, the autumn night is thus foretold. as darkness surrounds lovers cling to each other seeking warmth forever
