Newborn Autumn

Newborn Autumn
“An autumn forest is such a place that once entered you never look for the exit!” ― Mehmet Murat ildan

we don’t think of it as newborn,
but it is.
tender green leaves on the trees,
aging and turning bright.
apples on the tree and pumpkins in the fields.
nuts on the ground – hickory – my favorite –
opening their hulls and showing what was hidden
all during the summer.
the crisp air and the impossibly blue sky with purest
white clouds at a standstill in the midst of the blue.
lakes and oceans gasping their last
bit of warmth until the cold overtakes them.
newborn autumn –
getting older until the first snow.
