October Shadows

October rain beats against me

from diluted skies

flame and golden leaves crackling

surrendering to the soggy mud

crunched by footsteps

on hills that seem a little steeper


shadows fall fast

I trudge into damp darkness

and it’s only afternoon

a chill in the shadows


but all too present

is winter waiting?
