The best part of autumn

Leaves shrivel up,
drained of color,
shaken off tree limbs.
Sun lazily rises
& hurriedly sets
so early mornings
& evenings are
cloaked in darkness.
The best part of autumn isn’t
pumpkin spiced lattes
or sweater weather —
it’s cozying up with you
as days grow shorter
& nights get colder.
