October Sky

First storm of October

Whipping up out of the south

Pushing piles of clouds north creating space for heavier and darker clouds, quickly rearranging the skyscape over and over, pelting sideward rain.

Howling and whistling and tossing the leaves like fall colored confetti.

And when it’s rage is spent

October rests with gentle breezes over the bay

reflecting the contrasting cloud personalities —

light and fluffy or dark and heavy–

racing around the blue autumn sky.

Piles of oak leaves in every shade of yellow and brown dancing across the park lawn

A flock of gulls rises up off the rolling waves crying, “wasn’t that awesome?”
