Season's Changes

Season’s changes are not dramatic here

Trees do not change to honey and crimson

Strong winds, more frigid and wild, appear

Paper-thin jackets pullet tight, eyes glisten

No longer summer with sticky sweet air

All the vibrant colored scents to match the

Vibrant colored flowers worn in girls’ hair

Bare feet on sun-warmed pavement, sky aqua

All Hallows’ Eve nears, people look for fright

Worst fears can come true, if you want them too

Dark shadows of people afraid of light

Distant howls at the moon, a pop-out “boo!”

A quick, gradual change from bright to black

The happy weather leaves, whispered, “Come back...”
