as the summer's gone
we are not surprised to see
autumn rain at night
Surprised by the rain this morning, it was necessary to go out and play in it. It seems as if we didn't have a summer. We had glimpse of it. More like taking a peek at summer through a keyhole.
the wild summer peeked hotly
through a small keyhole
seeing only autumn rains

I love seeing leaves on the ground. Especially when they form a beautiful patterned carpet across concrete. This area doesn't see much fall colors. Not too many maple forests around here. One just have to find beauty and solace in what is here. In small measures.
