Pleasantly Fall

New carpet covers the path
As we pass one another
Our masks force us
To look into each others eyes
To see a smile

Smile we do
Speaking with our friends
Without words
The trees that cover us
Laugh at our limited vision
Sleeping in warm beds

What I saw:

SoCal trees are a little slow on the uptake. The nights get cool, but the days are still warm, so our poor trees become confused.
Eventually, like children, they concede it’s time to “sleep.”
