Heading Toward October

They all are heading toward October
buses   planes   and cruise ships even
going to see the October of
New Hampshire and Vermont

going to see the scarlet and the
deepest color of orange and
my favorite transparent yellow
glowing in the setting sun

going to see the bed and breakfasts
the flowing expanse of folding hills
and returning hopefully to home
just before November comes

with naked trunks and twisted limbs
when all the deepest forest is revealed
