a family connection

Walking by the wet mulch heating up in the sun ....
damp thoughts of childhood visits to my grandmothers decrepit tavern.
I worry about spiders in the dark corners and the mustiness makes it hard to breathe.

The brown leaf fell softly into the bright yellow space
while the heart of autumn
settled    
beyond the reach of summers glove.
