Brilliance

It’s the changes,

the  shorter days,

the loss of choraphyll 

that makes the lavish  leaves

green, of summer yield

to the brilliant autumn colors:

hello-yellow!  Rich red 

basic brown and

 purple-pleasure.

All of these colors already existed 

but it took the loss 

of steady choraphyll 

(and darkening days) to bring out

the brilliant colors.  

Not change you invited,

but change, 

nonetheless.
