On October’s Cusp

By Marianna Edmunds | Oct 24, 2010

Maybe you can see

Through this dense fog

White with the last days

Of an Indian summer,

Soft air gently lifts the flags

Up and around their poles

Like a painter's brush strokes

On his watercolor canvas.

Sometime the stillness

Holds the breath

Of an autumn at bay.
