Autumn Dreaming

I collect these works of art

in the greens and golds of autumn,

a mosaic I design near the root

of a favorite tree that keeps

telling me the season is changing,

even though today it is well over 

90 degrees; I lay them together, 

squint my eyes and pretend

the air is nipping my checks,

the gray sky carries a little mist,

and inside a fire waits to warm me 

as I drink cocoa with marshmallows

by candlelight.
