Photo Album

One of the things I like
 about oak trees
is the way they cling to their leaves
long after other trees have
shed their last leaves
to expose their bare skeletons.

Maybe it's because I want to
cling to autumn,
with its warm, glowing colors,
even though I know in my heart
that winter is coming
 and resistance is futile.
