– to autumn… with love –

I desire a moment to get swept up in the leaves,

every color,

bold as the Midwest air.

It is true beauty I see,

undeniable glamour that surrounds me,

everytime I walk that walk,

be it on Elm Street,

on Monroe Street,

or in the hills east of us.

What good fortune will it be

to witness another round of autumn,

the perfect chills down my spine as my eyes take in

the reds, browns, oranges, yellows, and

every hue in between. 


May the leaves shower upon me,

hopefully amid the sunset

with warm rays shimmering

through the treetops.


May my moment with the leaves come once again.
