Fall is the artist

From colorful corn to colorful leaves. The trees and bushes seem to vibrate with color now, just spectacular! So bright and wonderful – takes your mind off of all the other stuff going on right now.

October is a symphony of permanence and change.

Fiery colors begin their yearly conquest of the hills, propelled by the autumn winds. Fall is the artist.
~ Takayuki Ikkaku

fall: an artist? not
a painter's seasonal
decline, or poet's dry
spell, but pure interval,
solstice, in-
between season,
emblematic of an
in fore
grounding mutability. Loving
a threshold, a gate stuck open, a tree more wind than mere leaf.
