In celebration of the Autumnal Equinox of Thursday, 22 September 2005, and to remember a memorable evening: Happy Fall to all!

Fall Has Fallen On Me

Having slept all day I woke up at five
Reluctantly at first but later was
Grateful to find myself here still alive

I first noticed that things had changed because
Of the late light glowing through my window
Orange and violet speaking of change
A rumbling expectant feeling that strange
Events were in store above and below
The sky was spectacular everywhere

Then I turned around and saw a rainbow
The like of which I never saw before
Filling the sky so broad so deep so high
That I have never seen anything more
Incredible less plausible yet there
It was and then it faded then was gone

But left its after-image as came on
From all sides all at once lightning flashing
And violent thunder booming crashing
Followed on this eve of the dawning fall
By the sweet scent of unfamiliar rain
After dry months the most welcome of all

Then except for flashing now and again
Of lightning as thunder drummed its refrain
It was night all at once but still the moon
Full and white and brilliant soared above it
All as the fall stormed in without warning
And so it will remain until morning

Fall has fallen on me and I love it
Alone with the moon in the afternoon
Of the year just where I want to be: here

Fantastic capture of my favorite season of change, the picture even looks like the country up around my cabin in the woods. As most people in canada dread the coming snows of winter I embrace them as much as I embrace the falling leaves of Fall and the buds of floweres in Spring.
Great write my friend,
