The cool night air brushed through the trees

Their leaves starting to turn

Vibrant summer green peeked through the gold, orange, yellow, and red

Not yet reaching their full potential a yin yang of color

Preceding the fireworks of color before they shed their coat of leaves

Hiding their beauty from winter's icy hands

Already a few leaves drifted through the air

Scattered across the grass

Adding to the growing excitement of some as soon the rest would fall

Winter was coming
