Today's poem is by Todd McCarty

Fall for You

Here-let's string a little gray
in the background. Next, a maple
and walnut tree tossed on the grass.
At the base of one of them, a little
black Schnauzer sniffing around.
A gust or two to shove the leaves
all over. Just a touch of rain.
Now, I want you right here with
your pink umbrella like a tulip
turned inside out. That's good enough
isn't it?
