the final stretch

dscf2728.jpgthe light fades as the sun sinks beyond the horizon

every day the shadows reach across the earth only to recede

the wind picks up from the north and blows against the trees

the last leaves fall by the dozen

as the limbs shake their branches free

the final stretch is here

this in between place

before the water freezes over

and the snow begins to fall
