Collin Key Flickr Woman walking with her dog through an autumn landscape
Come burnt orange
golden yellow and burnished red
relief from heat waves
and air conditioners.
Remember my light red jumper
They’re out once more.
Loosen your leaves
to reveal sculptural trees
on the hillsides.
Let the fading days of summer
whisper listening toautumn jazz
with a milo.
By June Perkins
