Indian summer vine –
tiny rust flowers clamber
up to the blue sky
eager to see if autumn
has gotten closer to home

    This is delightful Toni. Lately when walking the dogs I have noticed more and more plants, Vines and shrubs that intertwine. What a perfect symbol for diversity.

    Great minds and all that – we’ve both used ‘rust’ in our poems! I love those tiny rust flowers!

    So that’s why vines climb! The fall colours are everywhere up here now.

    here in NW WA state. Indian summer usually lasts until mid-October or later; nature has to rush the fall colors, and (thanks be to the weather sprites), usually winter is mild as well–just rainy.

    Somehow, I had an image of a child peeling out of a darkened bedroom to check if Santa has arrived. 🙂
