FALL ARRIVES IN THE BAY AREA

FALL ARRIVES IN THE BAY AREA

First day of Autumn,
dress the bed in summer sheets—
No more summer fog.



Thermometer spikes
triple digits, welcome Fall—
No more flannel sheets.



Summer fog and mist
winter sheets, flannel nightgown—
I dreamed of the sun.



Temperature rises
No it's not global warming—
Indian Summer.



Fans patrol the room
too hot to sleep, crickets sing
a chorus to Fall.
