My Take – Saddle Up Saloon; Colleen’s Double Ennead Challenge No. 8 #autumn #doubleennead

Colleen invites us to write a Double Ennead about autumn. Click HERE for the details.

Lamentations

mother says, “let it be”
autumn is here now
yet, the grass and trees are still green and it’s warm
we love the cool breezes
acorns on the ground

brown leaves are floating down
not yet in color
north Texas is very different from NY city
where one sweater or two
were needed for warmth

no wood burning this year
drought is upon us
the earth is thirsty, pumpkin spice will not do
a freeze is not likely
Mother, color please
