content in the falling by  Teri H Hoover





 Backyard Garden, Blacksburg VA- Sept 07, 2011


The hollow sound of summer leaving in a rush.
A low roll of thunder
like an enormous door 
slamming shut in the distance.

Abandoned by summer.
Left behind,
cold and forsaken-


A few resolute but embattled black eyed Susans stare out on the dismal morning,
their yellow raincoats drenched and dirty.

Content they fall
to dreaming 
about the happy purple asters
outside the garden gate.
