Ignoring Season's Call


Terry Lowenstein




Beneath a chiseled pewter sky
woodlands once green,
shiver with the cold.

Dark burnished leaves
tired from carousing with the wind,
lay exhausted in a pile.
As time seems to hold his breath
Winter waits impatiently
to cloak the land in white,

but Fall refusing to be rushed
tarries childlike
ignoring season's call.
