yellow leaves fall
in a late summer wind,
my small son looked at the trees and
yelled no.

For more poetry, go to Sunday Scribblings. I particularly enjoyed Quin Browne at a gasping little voice, Dee Martin at Thoughts Have Wings, and the concise piece published at GlowbyWords.

    Thank you so much for the shout out 🙂 I loved this – little boys and fall – a good combination any time!

    I think I'm feeling like your son these days: it's been a cool summer around here; hard to appreciate crisp autumn mornings coming without having first had the hazy sweet heat of summer.
