Enshrining Autumn

Like seeking firmest fruit
amongst the pithy
the bruised and unripe
I gather them-
her October words
burnished fallen blushes
strewn amongst the thyme-
and fit them safe
between waxy glassine windows.

Hi KGT, I followed your link from the carnival. I have been feeling somber as summer comes to a close without being able to put it into words, but this comes very close. Some deft wordplay and graphic imagery, thanks for an enjoyable read.
