The October Blue Sky

Swans in Mill Pond, Milford, MA

I think of you in the chiseled autumn light
Dead leaves crunching underfoot
A breeze hinting winter’s first chill
I think of you alone
For October is a lonely month
Painted distinct and clear
No pastel of summer
Or January’s black and white
Everything stands out
In knife sharp detail
On your head I count each hair
Below your eye I see a tear
Life’s joy wanes with the daylight
Bright-color lively days
Turn to the chill of
Melancholy nights
As I walk
Through a wood red and orange
Across fields turned to gold
I think of you
Under the October blue sky

        I never actually thought of it before until you mentioned it; how sky is only this blue in October. That is so incredibly true. And maybe around March as well. When spring is coming.

      Autumn is my favorite season and October my favorite month, even though it is a bit melancholy. Yesterday I stood and watched the sky just because it was a color that I only see once a year. Looking around, even the dull color stand out crisp and clear, but there are so many colors that aren’t dull! The air smells so… Anyway, can you tell I love October? ;) Yes, though it be bittersweet…
