Noll's Forecast


In my corner
 of all existing things,
Fall has come.

Time for cool night falls,
For trees morphing
 into bouquets
of yellow, orange, crimson.

Birds flocking.
Clacking,
chirping cacophonies,
rising from
the colored canopies.

The hummingbird
 has caught
a ride out of town.

Sunlight slants.

Honeysuckle,
bittersweet berries swell.
The locust pods hang low
upon the bough,
desiring the ground.

Fall.
Nature's descent:

Neither containable
or collected in a jar.

All we own 
is its changing presence.

My Sunday
will be sunny,
with a slight chance
of starlings.

What a wonderful poetic forecast. Yes, our hummingbirds have moved south, but we still have other birds I can watch. My favorite thing is to watch the busy busy chipmunks in th rock walls.

Great forecast. Did the little hummingbirds pack their tiny bags and catch a ride on the Canadian Geese?
