Can't believe how fast Summer is almost behind us,
The birds are trying to savor
the last couple of weeks of sunshine and warmth,
however the random sprinkle of swirling leaves and russet tones
gently reminds us that we can't hold on much longer
and that we must let go and welcome the calming sanctuary of the fall.
Autumn celebrates what summer has accomplished
fruit, wheat, vegetables, memories
and our sustenance for another year.
