Autumn...

is undressing for winter,
although some colors still hold on.
Protected mums remind us of the beauty
that will be again.
One sweet potato plant yields much,
but the ground is hard and dry for digging.
The winter radishes are almost gone
and the snow peas are eaten by deer.
The sunrises are beautiful
showing bare trees.
The  plants dressed in frost,
dream of spring.

I wish you weren't working.
I wish you liked strangers coming to your home to visit.
