the first acorn of autumn fell today

i heard it thread it’s path through the yellowing leaves, as it bounced against a branch




until finally it came to rest at my feet

in my heart i heard an echo…you laughing, and commenting on the harsh winter to follow

i paused, was still, and waited for another…

smoke in the air, leaves lazily spinning downward, eyes closed, my ears strain to hear

the autumn sounds
