A Hint of Fall

A Hint of Fall

A hint of fall

Relief from fetid days of summer

With breaths of crisp air

Highlighting September

As August creeps toward closing

And seasonal transitions

Make way for new delights

Changes in fashion

Mark changes in momentum

As lethargy yields

To harvest repasts

With bountiful splendor

Like foam on a beer stein

The colors of autumn

Refresh and invite

Time for renewal

Feelings internal

Opens the soul

Opens the eyes

Days moving forward

Toward holiday seasons

Joy to behold

As fam’lies unite

A hint of fall

Refreshes the senses

Like a cold brew in October

Or a carnival ride

A soupçon of freshness

Like meditation reveals candor

The cool autumn pleasures

Flow in with the tide
