the leaves are changing
as they do every autumn
in the place where I now live
I find surprises
things and events undesired
people say it's smart
forever follow your gut
I reach for candy
colors of the day
weave into the knot of tears
wrap around my heart
The title and last stanza of the poem are a nod to the song "Colors of the Day" by Judy Collins.
