October Days

It starts a little drear and grey
beginnings of an autumn day
dew revealing spiders high
in fir and cedar against the sky…
Low-hanging cloud obscures the sun
but it will show before day’s done: 
webs will move with rainbow glimmer,
leaves in breezes, flip and shimmer,
sunlight sideways gilds and limns
with memories of summer times,
even as the daylight’s going
making way for evening glowing.
