As Fall Reawakens

As Fall Reawakens

A cool breeze assaults the heat

     of another summer afternoon

Bringing relief and a hint

     of fall lingering on the horizon

A new season cooling the air

     and painting the trees a myriad of hues

Festival glories revisiting daydreams

     with harvests and goblins and beer fests galore

A time for reflection as days slowly shorten

     and nights cool for sleeping content and relaxed

As fall reawakens splendid sensations

     of cool breezes assaulting another summer day

  1. The Fall is more magical than Winter. In Winter most things are dead. The poetry’s in the dying.
