And just like that
The morning says “autumn”
In the cold heavy wet of the dew
In the spider webs stretching
Across every path
And the high waves
that push the lake through
the sand-buried jetties
In the cool morning fog
That you know can’t outlive the sun
Which shines on the fall-like
But still heated days
And says she’s not done

  1. “And the high waves
    that push the lake through
    the sand-buried jetties
    In the cool morning fog….”

    Such a wonderfully apt image! 🙂

  2. Oh, this is truly such a pleasure to read. So perfectly written…and “just like that” – so true. I love how these elements of nature speak in your poem. Very much enjoyed!

  3. I love the way your poem starts with ‘And just like that’, as if taken completely by surprise, and the morning speaking through the dew and spider webs! My kind of morning, with a perfect ending.

  4. wonderful gently rhymed free verse, my favorite thing I think. The dew/through enjambed rhyme made me smile, an anchor in the middle of a breath, a surprise, like autumn itself. With 105 degree F heat indices here, I am still waiting for the surprise.
