T-Shirt Weather

T-shirt weather in November; it’s
a strange time. Abalone sky instead
of mackerel. No miracle of frog
downpour or fish explosion, just the mists
of breath that wreathe each passer round the head
as hazy day replaces morning fog.
Abandoned jack o'lanterns hold debate
with mushrooms sprouting out of fallen leaves:
is fall more poignant when it comes so late,
or when the autumn gales ruin sheaves

still standing tall for harvest? Loss is tragic
at all ages, say aficionados.
Winter works inevitable magic
whether led by drizzles or tornados.
