Bittersweet

I stand ankle deep in crunchy colors of orange, red, brown and yellow. I wait for sun to kiss my face, but instead a cool wind slaps me from behind. Enormous white clouds are hanging from the blue gray skies like cotton balls.

The jet-black nights creep in earlier and surround me like a cold, damp cloak that I can’t shed until late morning. Only the mums and sunflowers are happy, the lavender and daisies have wilted, their dried stalks rattle in the wind like the remnants of a fire.

I stand in awe, breathe deep the cool sensation and welcome Mother Nature’s change of clothes. Still though, I must catch the few remaining tears that fall from my warm ocean memories, and sweep off the last bit of sand still clinging to heart.
