Autumnal Equinox

The calendar on my desk tells me it's autumn but I can see creation has known this for awhile. From the office's library window, I look north. Beaucatcher Mountain stretches to meet Sunset Moutntain in a friendly green curtain. Chunns Cove separates the previous two mountains from Cisco Mountain and Piney Mountain to the east. These four mountains retain their emerald green covering, but that too will fade. The leaves on the maple tree north of McDonalds below the office window turned deep red during the last days of summer. First, the top most branches changed color giving a red to green gradient collage and now the tree displays a dark red almost violet robe. About a hundred feet away is another tree resting at the edge of the Wal-Mart parking lot. It begins to turn bright yellow within a week of the McDonalds's tree. Soon, the four mountains will feel the full kiss of Autumn.
