Late October Evenin’
Darkness descends upon me a little earlier every day,
As colors seem to leap from the trees to paint the sky.
The cold winds howl through scraping branches,
While my bones ache a bit more now.
And as the last slip of light hastens me home-
Soon I will feel the hearth warm my soul and bring gentle rest.

I first wrote this poem last fall as I observed the fall sky and the colder evenings. It was originally published on my garden blog, Gardens Eye View, on November 4, 2013.
I am joining in with Poets United for their weekly poetry link up for poets who blog. Visit them to read some more wonderful verse.
Special Note: The sky here is what I see in autumn outside my door as the sun sets in all its splendor and the blue hour descends.
I leave you with a bit of a sentiment about the lure of the evening as the light fades. Feel free to download the photo and share.
