"That Morning You Wake Up" This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   That morning you wake up
tofind that the chilled air suddenly got cold

When thecolored leaves and the bare branches are
Suddenly crispwith the Diamond
kiss of frost

When the firewood isstacked high in the already packed
Garage
and hotChocolate, in mug filled with memories
warmsstiff
chilled hands

When Raking leaves is replacedby
shoveling Snow

I Know then that I will have towait
once again for those colors, feels and felts
tocome again. But I Know they will.
They always do.

I loved the poem! I liked the fact that every thing in the poem is so familiar to most people.
