Autumn - Poem by Mark R Slaughter

Red has come –
It blew in unexpectedly
When I was vulnerable.
And it brought the cold –

Not of still and blue,
But the dying embers type,
As if to say 'Goodnight Summer.'

    This terse poem speaks volumes about Autumn Mark.
    Though short and sweet it says everything in so few words.
    The nicest poem I've read on Autumn this season.
    THANK YOU for sharing it with me Mark.
