Crisp October!

cloudy skies,
even through dark nights.
Crisp October!
don't fall or flee too quickly.
but fall slowly,
let me soak you in;
breathe the red, orange, yellow.
watching death never looked so beautiful.
maybe there really is beauty --
in everything?
I just haven't ever looked...
ever really looked...
until now.
just tonight, that one moment.
Crisp October!
don't be so fleeting --
give me time.
time to sip chocolate,
hold hands,
and wrap myself in a quilt of patchwork.
Crisp October --
it's good to see you again.
