First Sign


The first sign of Fall
a touch of coolness
a crispness in the air
like a mother's soothing hand
across one's face
bringing kindness and relief
making the heat of summer
slink away
Fall rolls in overnight
and surprises
when you open the door
and feel its first embrace.

Great writing, one of your best. Have always liked autumn, but found many don't as it is the prelude to winter. I like the relief from the heat, the different air, the colours, new wine, new oil persimmons, and roast chestnuts sold in the street!

Perfect. I had that same sensation stepping outside this evening.
