Summer ebbs, tucks spent sunflowers
under falling sycamore leaves,
leisurely segues into crisp winter.
Twilight brings bone-chilling fog,
diffused glow from rising moon
through splayed cypress fingers.
Owls croon within spectral forest.
Silvered waves pulse ashore between
celestial light, enveloping darkness.
