Indian summer gives way
To the first frost
As a quarter moon rises
Over the slumbering mountain.
From the trees beyond the creek
I hear the hooing
Of an owl
From somewhere nearer
The rounded peaks
Comes the yip-yip-yipping
Of a coyote.
I watch my breath,
Barely visible
Within the weak light
Leaking from behind
The curtained windows,
As it drifts away
Into the darkness
Beyond my nose,
And I pull my sweater
Closer about my body
In a vain attempt
To soothe the chill bumps
Rising from my skin;
But I am in no rush
To return
To the warmth indoors.
I am content
To sit upon my porch swing
And breathe the smoke-scented air,
Reflecting upon my blessings
As Nature beds herself down
For the long winter ahead.

This poem releases the mind to think peaceful thoughts. Your imagery is so powerful that I can almost smell the wood smoke and feel the chill in my air-conditioned home. Wonderful.

A lovely autumn reflection. I now await our first frost, and the usually brief but marvelous Indian Summer that will follow it.
Reviewed by Jerry Bolton 9/30/2012
You are excellent at drawing the reader a perfect picture of what you want them to see. In this case I saw and I was mesmerized. Good work, Rebecca
