AUTUMN CHRONICLE ...


Brrrrr ! ! ! 
The ground ALMOST got frost during the night ... 
38 degrees F ... 
bit early in the season but a GOOD hint
of a wonderful INDIAN SUMMER coming soon ... 
Walking in the WOODS at sunrise,
it seemed like the world stood STILL ... 
NO wind,
NOTHING moving,
NO birds singing yet ... 
TONS of fallen leaves on the floor of the forest
that were not even given a CHANCE
to change color ... 
Summer seems to have lost
her WAR against fall ...
The humus and twig BATTLEFIELD
will shortly become a composting CEMETARY
studded with warmer days casualties ...
