    i like to listen to the wind
    play as the melody of the
    jazz piano tells stories of
    life in the return of the fall;

    the dance of dried leaves on
    the cooling surface swirling
    around making a kaleidoscope
    of colors mixed with hints of joy;

    i like to take a moments rest
    on a park bench and just listen,
    listen, listen to the quiet as the
    trees rustle a harmony in the breeze;

    have you ever seen leaves in the
    midst of a turn from green to brown,
    summer to fall, life to death as it
    awaits it's chance to play in the grass?

    i like to take a deep inhale of the
    freshness in the air and keep it all
    for me hoping to share some later
    with the one whom i hold in winter;

    the air is brisk as the sun seeks its
    moment among the quick moving
    clouds making it hard to decide if
    a sweater is too much for the time;

    but today fall has arrived and i shall
    wait here for the day the air chants a
    winters solace through the strands of
    my sweater to see love walking by;
