Fall is Here
Fall is here. Despite the deception of warm days and gentle nights. Leaves are thick on the ground, emitting their pungent spice. Fields are harvested, plowed clean, and either lying fallow or planted with winter wheat. The winter wheat graces fields with bright, tender new growth, an echo of Spring. Livestock show shaggy coats, dappled with mud. Gardens with skeletal tomato plants, maybe the orange glint of a pumpkin forgotten. The sky grey and soft today, mist falling, saturating all, silvering grass with fine spray. Fall is here, time to reflect, restock, relax a bit, look to Winter.
