The heavy rains which swept through,
have cleaned the last remaining pieces of summer.
The beginning of autumn,
with cool nights and mornings
and warm days has arrived.
In time for pumpkins
and the changing colors of the leaves.
Summer is no more
and winter will approach,
but before the cold and bleakness
an explosion of color and festivities.
Trick or treaters will soon come,
in all of their fantasies of costumes.
Cooler winds, but still a warm sun.
It is a good time of year.
