Looking Out into October

Print Share
    Driving rain
    washes against my window
    as more low clouds move past
    on their way to the coast.
    Across the street
    a dripping chestnut sheds
    its fiery leaves to the ground,
    now one,
    then three.
    As the wind swoops down
    the fading grass cowers
    beneath the hedges,
    beside the driveway.
    Grey, rust, and green.
