Change of Season

CHANGE OF SEASON Today brings about a new season A lingering darkness awaiting the Sprout of sunrise in an eastern sky Winds shifting, a drafty Canadian air Cool and prickly on the skin Clouds dense and low-hanging as though Stuck in the throat of heaven Like a ball of cotton Leaves changing to rust, gold, and bronze Curling into themselves, dropping from limbs Like fluttering origami kites A sudden eruption of autumn shades, Blooms of mum and aster Like tiny bold-colored umbrellas Snapped abruptly open Such a phenomenal change of scenery, A cheerful death, bound to bring Yet another spring awakening.
