Painted Season

Ponderously graceful
Sun descends
Toward the southern horizon
Over days

Red and yellow
Bleeding into greens
So ends summer
Blends into fall

I Relinquish
With reluctance
Delicious summer
For a more complex flavor

Deep taste of autumn
Steeped in morning darkness
Tinged with frosty magic
Scented with evening firelight

Lined with knowing
At once too little and too much
In the moment ignoring
The coming absence of color

With shorter days
Chilled beneath reverently falling snow
Bleaching gradually invisible
The colors of this dream
