autumn equinox

“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.”
Albert Camus

the sharp breeze winds down my lungs

blowing the ashes of summer


my warm skin

touched by the fresh arrival of autumn


the crisp air crunches under my breath

tickles my nose, awakens my dry soul


knock… knock… sing the raindrops

full of the dewey plumpness,

they slide on my hair

ever so gently


the crimson leaf


dancing gracefully

under the hood of the clouds


the sky

opens up

with plush cotton balls

and allows the autumn sun

kiss the earth 




happy first day of autumn! how is autumn where you live?
