Too Short

smashing gold
of maples strikes
me from the blue

as I ride slowly
through woods
these dates in October

but the time is
too short
the time for paint

in the trees
is fleeting
a time I grab

with both hands
mostly a camera
possibly paintbrushes

quickly snapping
this glaring palette
before it flees

Brilliant October Maple, Morton Arboretum, 2020
