5 Leaves Left

To say it is fall here, is to say that it is summer at the north pole. Unthinkable.
The trees are all green and it was hot today. Somehow though, it is as if the world knows its fall and there are leaves on the ground and squirrels gatherings pine nuts for winter (do we even have a winter?). The earth continues as if there are seasons even though there are not.

This leaf was my favorite. Its as if it couldn't decide to stay green or change. It finally decided it could do both.

When the day is done
Down to earth then sinks the sun
Along with everything that was lost and won
When the day is done.
