Signs of fall

Signs of fall

My dog Ace

The Midwest – especially North Dakota – has these subtle signs of fall.

They begin in July with the grasshoppers. And the grass slowly browns.

The morning light soon changes. Crickets are present. The geese gather.

I see my breath. Smell the frost.

Southern California has its own signs, if I look.

Cool nights, hot days. A child runs to school.

I chase the evening sun.

A few stars, some yellow, needing to come down.
