in which the patch turns yellow

Yellow tagetes have sprung into light

like butterflies skimming the surface

of the sun. Pear and crab apple nod

to autumn turning into the reddish

shades of a mellow dusk. The patch

pauses, dappled reflections filtering

through arches of cathedral trees

as leaves drop from an endless blue.
