colors of fall.

in the fall i miss you Photo taken with my Canon: Las Vegas, NV

With fall here, new winds have starting to feel cool to my body and refreshing to my soul. In my New York days, the change was apparent… from humid, moist air to a dry, crisp leaf. Being in Southern California, there are pockets of places where the leaves change color, yet keeping the tropical feel of palm trees who remain to sway in the sun. Here, the change is subtle, allowing my awareness to rise at nature’s secret happenings. The flowers bloom differently, the stars in the sky change patterns and the farmer’s market attests to the new climate as I pick apples and broccoli over blueberries and okra. I wrote this haiku in honor of this beautiful season.

“in the fall, i miss you.”
