Summer Falls Into Winter

chill in the morning air

brings blessed relief

soothes my fevered thoughts

aromas become crisp

tart apple on my tongue

change is in the air

possibilities wind-blown leaves

swirling at my feet

edges newly turned

crimson, pumpkin, gold

some worship spring

verdant and fertile

but I am a woman of the North

explosion of my colors

rich in the fading light
