October Surprise

October begins with leaves 
and ends in emptiness 
and in-between occurs 
a colorful illusion 
lost to apple picking.

By November, everything is over
as if the none of it was ever there.
But that is getting far ahead of autumn things.
Stories need their telling like sleep needs dreaming.

There, a leaf is turning yellow, another
one is falling like a magic carpet
sailing in the cool fresh air,
and ten thousand erstwhile fallen
hide the ground from being self-aware.
