Ode to Fall

fall... you never fail
to get our attention
with the intensity
of your palette
and the sharp crispness
of your breath
you awaken us
from the long lazy
somnolence of summer
startling our senses
while we revel in your reality,
then try to gather you
grasping your fleeting coattails
and holding on for dear life
before the inevitable slide
into the dark and cold abyss
that follows

happy midpoint of fall (2 days ago)
