October's Objective



He has a duty to fullfill,

paving the path

between defiant Indian Summer

and frigid wrath of winter.

He clears the trees

of all their coverings,

for those left standing naked,

are most vulnerable.

He nips the air,

blowing nor-easterly breezes,

frosting the tips

of struggling blades.

He pulls the sun-shade

halfway down, so time falls

behind in step and darkness

takes the upper hand.

October has an objective

to accomplish~

to prepare the earth

for the changes Mother Nature

has decreed,

before November,

swiftly takes the reigns.
