Inevitability

by Don Matley







Sky faded
Weakening sun
Clouds grey
Gaggles flown
Cards stay
As do dees
Leaves dye with colour
Rakes make peaks
Colder floors
As snows blur
But no hurricanes

Author's Note: Irma ran over my son in St. Thomas but he survived but with no roof!

I'm glad he made it! There's a certain serenity to this depiction of the changing seasons. Lovely work.
