"Shoot for the moon, and even if you miss, you'll land among the stars."

Small lotus leaves fall
to add to the squash-yellow mask covering the face.

Wooly-worms, left to themselves to crawl the bare wood,

sustain the bitter wind that scatters the leaves,
swirling and scratching the sidewalk,

a queen ready to transform.

A newfound silence, but not quite empty, the cracked wood swings creaking.

Candy apples, silver maples, mint tea,
Soon changing to hot chocolate,
Soon to be huddled under a blanket,
with three layers already on.

But for now, I am one of the few enjoying the goosebumps.
