Fall's Harvest

there comes a time
in this season
when you look up
in disbelief

body, earth
parched ground, skin,
the gaping mouth of
a shrinking lake

all cry out
to a barren sky
that only rains
falling leaves
who driven by wind
deceive the ear
but dazzle the eye
with their golden, scarlet, russet hues

would i trade showers of color
for showers of rain
in these days of drought?

ask me tomorrow.
today, i feast
on fall's harvest
