The Turnover – A Quadrille

The Turnover

The fragrance of night jasmine
lingers in the evening air 
leaving scented memories
of sun-kissed days warming the skin

Soft rustling of late summer leaves
clinging tentatively to boughs as autumn winds
begin to blow, heralding the inevitable change
that is about to begin.
