Sickness gave me time to gaze out the window.
Summer’s TantrumSummer has been a petulant child
refusing to loose its grip on the heat
of scorching sun.
It bullies the breeze and keeps billowy clouds hiding
in mountain shadows.
Summer will not let Autumn play.
But today, watching green leaves bounce in the wake
of a stealthy gust
I witness the Relentless lift its head
and heave a sullen sigh.
Promised glimmers of hue and glow are heralded
on the stage of memory.
A timid cloud scurries across the sky and
escorts me toward my seat
to watch the scene unfold.
Autumn will have her way.
