It's fall.
It's water.
It's rain.
It's fog.

It's moss so green
my eyes see purple
when I look at clouds.

It's wet nettles.

It's the smell of resin
and turpentine.

It's quiet.
It's no dust.
It's no acid-blue sky.
It's a red twilight.
It's mushrooms under a log.
It's busy chipmunks.
It's bluejays not scolding.

It's the forest
and it's the mountain.

It's waiting for snow.
