in between seasons

sleepy summer sunrise sent salutations to stripe my bed sheets

seduce my shoulders

wake me with wishes and wonder

wanting one last walk on the beach to save stranded shells yet, willing splatters of harvest rainbows on lingering lush leaves

waving defiantly in the brisk breeze of the newborn season

paying their last homage to the Sun

as i sip caramel coffee listening to Coltrane

wrapped in an indigo robe and notes of golden brass

sending my salutations to Autumn

come on in, stay awhile.
