I'm hungry for something I can't quite define.

It's autumn (not here, not yet, but I can almost touch the turn of season). My tastes change as the seasons do. But what do I want?

I want the last of the summer fruit, the first of the crispest fall apples, blue against green-gold.

I want tea bright with spices, cooled with just a hint of milk.

I want something comfortable to read, chilly enough to wake me from my heat-daze but warm enough to snuggle in, with magic and wine and the clatter of window meeting a sill... whether to keep something in or out, who knows.

I want different fabrics against my skin, soft-rough and soundless as I move. I want boots on my feet -- well, I always do, but especially now.

I want the evening to fall earlier, to draw over me wherever I am, bringing me the stars.

I'm hungry for something. What about you?

I want summer to hold my hand until I'm safe in the arms of autumn.

I want the sun to linger red in the west through black branches, but still keep me warm before it's dark.

I want to turn as slowly as the dogwood leaves, taking long months to be red in the hazy sweet air.

I want a mouthful of the sweetest grapes and the smell of a fire, far away.

Oh, those are lovely thoughts -- love the line about turning, even if I don't quite share your wish. :-)

Beautifully written, L.

I'm hungry for the turn of the year and the release of the old.
