Seasonal Alaska Diary -October 7, 2013

That giant sucking sound?
Five minutes and forty seconds
of daylight draining
out of the day.
Today. sunshine enhanced
leaves of crimson, gold and orange.
I wanted to consume
the colors
as an antidote to
the coming darkness.
Tonight, wind and rain
will batter and dull
the trees into skeletons.
