The harvest moon breathes

Sharing Phillip’s take on the prompt –

The harvest moon breathes
deep tonight, sharing spices
from the cornucopia of pumpkin oranges
and warm apple reds
cooling in the autumn breeze
tossing leaves through the air
like cinnamon confetti celebrating
another summer’s retreat.

As squirrels snack on acorn squash
preparing for the unflinching onslaught
of gray, dull winter, I sip
on apple cider awed
by the colors of nature confident
in this moment
the moon will never exhale
and fall will never dwindle.

    • We are seeing some signs of autumn! It’s been hot here with temps in the 90s so the change is slow coming. However, the temps are starting to dip down this week.

  2. ‘As squirrels snack on acorn squash’ is a really fun line to roll on the tongue.
