Autumn Arriving

By John I. Blair

Autumn, arriving
Surprisingly quick,
Shoved summer away
In only two days.

Leaves I thought
Were still alive
Have blown around
And littered the garden.

Made brief goodbyes
Then flew down south
To Guatemala.

And firewood bundles
I mocked last week
Are in my trunk,
Home-bound for blazes.

2017 John I. Blair, 10/11/2017
