Relief

It’s late summer
The light has faded
I feel a deep 
sigh coming on
Fields of tall 
grasses yellowed
falling over in
heat exhaustion
Bright red berry laden
branches fill thickets
The black berries
already withered
on wild vines
Yellow jackets old
fly confused 
And there right 
before me relief
Evidence of a
changing guard
A garnet leaf 
amid the
papery green 
A signal that Fall 
is on the march
