On This Day…

The air bears witness, ever so slightly,
that winter is behind the scenes.
September warmth is deceiving,
The nights tell the truth,
the leaves as well,
and what they call “Good sleeping weather”
is all the coming end of sunny days.
So the pace quickens,
and all the living things
choose to be more lively.
To take it all in.
To prepare.
Gray skies, long nights,
and winter all will come soon enough.
So these last glimpses become gifts,
jewels of the most beautiful kind,
and memories that sustain
in the cold days ahead.
