... October skies
Sometimes sunny, sometimes stormy.  That has been you this year.  It has very much mirrored my life as of late.  Today you are overcast and cold.  You are changing the leaves into deep brilliance.

And I can't believe that you are nearly gone.

I stand in the doorway
between my cozy kitchen and
back balcony;
door wide open,
rain pouring,
wind blowing.
