October Oak

October Oak

as daylight hours decrease
trees will lose leaves

these colours come 
around each fall

green leaves grow dim
changing colours 
almost overnight


one day you see
a bright orange tree

and suddenly know
october's back again


summer cumulus
clouds become cirrus

nights become chilly

the time comes for
fall gardening jobs


there are shrubs to trim
many leaves to rake

soon it will be too cold
you know we're going

into winter's deadly cold


most importantly
see and enjoy the colours
