Time Between

Out of season the maple leaves fall
feathered with a blight that spares
green everlasting over the white picket fence:

Time between
the now of pain that comes thunderclap
amidst birdcalls, breezes
and the moment when it will
drift on three mindful breaths.

Two retired professors, we heard school started today and have seen 6 yellow leaves.
