Suddenly you are everywhere at once.

The air pops like champagne;

Cardinal-mitred leaves chuckle in the wind.

The earth holds you to itself, and

Happiness surrounds you like the sea.

Somewhere, deep inside,

A child has begun to sing.

Fall leafskip.

November air has wrapped up the

sky in a blue satin bow.

Orphaned in icy waters,

grey flannel stones stand murmuring guard

over salamanders and disgraced samurai bones.

Photons flare a crisp greeting and

are off to Vega,

humming a De Broglie tune.

The hills are dressed to the nines.

Millenial toughs,

they arch their hulking backs

and settle down to glower at each other.

A long-necked river bird,

stunted scion of a T-Rex,

silently wings by,

carrying the valley with it.

Ambushed by the sun,

Liberace-hued leaves mournfully exploded.

The November air had

tied up the sky

with a cerulean knot.

Winter coughed and peered at us from

behind a naked cherry tree.

Its dusky robes

a trick of the light,

a crow abruptly carved the silence

into a million longing wounds.

The old men in the park

they move like trees–

weathered steps shadowing

autumn’s footfall.
