Noll on the Coming of Fall


Photo & Poem by Kareen
-------
The warm sun slanting,
Dew drops glimmering,
A soft-warm breeze tickling
The catnip leaves.
---
Sweet-September morn!
---
The last of the yellow daisies bend
-Like the rays of the golden sun-
A little lower to the land.
---
A cheep, a chirping,
The scurrying
Of a fat-black cricket
Into the cool-damp.
---
I feel a waning:
---
A need to say goodbye
To the tiny-white alyssum,
The tender-green grass,
The effervescent hummingbird.
---
Farewell to chasing
Brittle-gray moths
Flittering,
Fluttering in the sky.
---
Time cannot be commanded.
---
The rays that drench the earth,
pour out as milk in a bowl -
---
I sit lapping, lapping!
Drinking,
As much as I can.

Those are lovely words. Don't worry, the crickets and moths may go, but think of all the leaves you will get to chase.
