October 6: The Gracious Month

Gentle commencement for a hectic day
Is proof variable nature can be kind,
With offerings of dew that cool my feet
And unexpected blooms in autumn’s heat.

Deciduous decay and blossoms sweet
In temperate October are combined.
The the daytime warmth begs summertime to stay
As falling darkness pushes it away.

Not even California can delay
Earth’s unrelenting angle nor defeat
The system our sun’s gravity aligned,
So to the shifting seasons we’re resigned.

I feel the sunlight growing less intense
And jack-o-lanterns ample recompense.

Fun with rhyme scheme today! This was ABCC CBAA ACBB DD.
