I usually post this poem when the ginkgo trees lose all of their leaves…

…but I am about a day late this year.

Better late than never.

Brazen Nature

The ginkgo trees let loose their leaves
all at once, a shower of squash yellow sunshine
dusting the somber asphalt as well as the sheepish corner park,
both blushing at the loud farewell.
