evidence of changes

 while driving to colton
 i spotted a strange thing
on a silo
my brave little canon
caught a closeup
i couldn't sort it out visually
till my camera did!
 the light has changed
and it's certainly fall
 and color
 wild (space fruit) cucumber
 in the hedgerows
 and then there was this one

 wouldn't even acknowledge me
and wasn't posing for the paparazzi
but i did snag a shot or three
 so i looked over to find
three sisters
one wrapped in flowering glories
not out that evening.
 then the sun fled
and marked a backbone
on the fenceline
a week of warm weather
was so welcome
even though
the nights are quickly lengthening.
because of that,
i have some new printed papers
folios for books.
