To Fall, With Love

Wednesday, November 23, 2016

The year's final performance is here
The leaves rustle in the breeze as if in applause
The garden puts on its final show 
Before saying goodbye and goodnight

Red, gold, and coral brilliance
As far as the eye can see

I open my eyes wide...wider
To take it all in, to remember all of its beauty

But my eyes can't seem to open wide enough 

So we gather souvenirs and keepsakes of this season's show

As reminders of its splendor
Until its arrives again.
