Thursday Thirteen: Autumn dba 'The Fall'
1. I like autumn, which is currently doing business as The Fall
2. Because everything does. Always the atmosphere is animated with color.
3. This most vibrant and beautiful time of dying is full of sound, too.
4. There is no silence. Anywhere.
5. And there is more light. It gets through everywhere and touches everything.
6. That warmth and light ignite the secret incense of autumn,
7. And the air is filled with the fragrance of leaves and wood and earth.
8. At night the moon is visible--in fact, it is touchable
9. As it rests in the cradle of bare branches at the tops of trees.
10. The moon surrenders to the trees; the trees, to the cold; the cold, to
11. Small fires and the warm breath of living things
12. That continue their steady march to winter
13. Through leaves that (like I said) will have the final word.
