Mountain Autumn

Mantis-praying-FALL
Touch-me-nots-and-peppermint-FALL
Cut-the-wood-split-the-kindling-
buy-the-coal-FALL
Chainsawed men in oil-stained jackets
Ready? Set?
Gentlemen, start your engines!
Indy-of-the-forest-FALL
Septembered days
Octobered evenings
Novembered nights
And, finally,
silently in concert
leaves blare out
the Last Hurrah of Autumn.
