    even the lake has turned
    red

    a few raindrops-
    the cardinals
    dig for breakfast

    first hard frost---
    the face of the pansy
    shows its age

    faded sunshine
    withered late bloomer --
    fragrance of the rose lingers on

    first frost -
    steam-driven people
    at the bus stop

    hoarfrost
    through his unkempt beard --
    rivulet scar from a past winter
