Chill

text and haiku by Kristen Lindquist

Suddenly it’s feeling like fall around here. I’ve been shivering all day, despite wearing full-length pants and socks for the first time in a few months. I just grabbed another sweater. Yet the golden sunshine of late afternoon glows deeply, filtering through the still-green leaves.

Bundled in sweaters,
mocked by the day’s
last rich glow.
