A Color Wheel

A friend told me that fairies drink out of acorn cups.
What a lovely thought.
Today on my walk, I noticed leaves falling.
Falling in the heat of a Texas day.
Crepe myrtle blooms on the ground,
some of them fading and others
bright red.
The degrees of autumn.
Warm days.
Cool nights.
Flora and fauna is the color wheel of fall.
Do you think the fairies make blankets
out of the fibers
of fallen leaves?
I love Thursdays.
I love you.
