Falling for Autumn

Autumn is the hardest season.  The leaves are all falling, and they're falling like
they're falling in love with the ground.
-Andrea Gibson

I ride face to sun
soaking in every last ray
golden light shrouds me

Soaking it in the warmth while I can--I may be half lizard

Psychedelic trees
fuel me for the next big climb
never let this end

A grass track splitting the flame red sumac

Autumn fill my nose
with earth, dry leaves and fungi
I'll smell white too soon

Sometimes you just have to treat yourself.  To a long ride with friends or solo, under the banner of changing leaves, to apple pie shots celebrating the new season, to a nap in sunbeams, and to pumpkin ice cream from the Chocolate Shop.  Cheers all and happy fall!
