Memoirs of Autumn

 

Summer closing to an end

 

The first change of scent seems to switch all at once

 

I walked outside one morning
and there was something different, definitely different

 

The air was crisper, clean

 

Leaves suddenly began to fall around me like a snow globe of orange and yellow

 

Maze shot out of the ground and was instantly six feet tall turning brown as I watched

 

Pumpkins began to morph into jack o lanterns and candles flickered from within

 

Rain poured but I remained dry small creeks began to appear and trickle away

 

Wind came tearing towards me I was suddenly struck by
everything all at once

 

Maze was blown down

 

Leaves began to rise and fall and swirl in a vortex of wind

 

The rain went sideways

 

The pumpkins rotted

 

The candles went dim
and burned out

 

Autumn was gone just as
fast as it had begun
