Resting Season

“The heart of autumn must have broken here and poured its treasure upon the leaves.”

— Charlotte Bates

I wait for that day,

the true break,

when autumn

scatters her fiery

tears, releasing

her full flung beauty

in a mass of golden

treasure that heaps

at the feet of bare-

limbed trees,

and that northerly

wind assures us 

winter’s resting season — 

the gathering time of home 

and hearth— is nearing.

—C.L. Fisher, November 2021
