The Fall of Fall

Winter-covered gray

Takes one last dip into

Autumn’s palette

Swirling orange and red

Onto the landscape

Closer to the edge

Of seasons combining

Once again into the world

While snow erases the colors

Into shiny whiteness

Unafraid and closely feared

The cold nips the bones

And freezes the senses

To it’s silent echo

It is almost here
