October

fall colors

Pumpkins and squash

slowly fading days

longer languid

nights

degrees of heat

leaving the air daily–

it is October.

memories of

New England walks

and the bite

of the new chill

boots, scarves, jackets…

and soon to come

the gray of

November

the aromas of its feast

the festivities

of December;

and my times

in other climes

with equatorial sunsets

and coastal baths

on New Years day.

traveling through 

December rain 

in London

to get home–

to get home,

to

get

home…
