"October Sky"

An October sky is like no other one.... A cool brisk wind and a clear bright sun.... The whispering breeze of wood burning.... Travels under my nose, and has my senses turning.... Little leaves of color fall so softly, exposing this maple tree for all to see.... The days are short and the evenings come soon.... An October sky that enhances the moon.... A walk in the park as our feet shuffle through the fallen leaves.... The children play on this Autumn day, with hints of green from Summer it seems.... The clouds thicken nicely to make a ceiling for this night.... For under an October sky, to me every things right... For "Fall" contest
