autumn blue

as the sun gets ready to cross the equator this weekend and slide us into autumn, it's changing angle is beginning to color those October blue skies.
As I went out this morning and floated into the blue, I thought about Molly's question a couple years ago. "Dad, wonder how God knew that green would look so good with blue?"
I also thought about long lazy afternoons under these skies and turning leaves with Allison, and felt quite lonely for a moment. So I thought it would be appropriate to compose a cheesy poem for her. As I climbed into the truck, I spoke these cheese-filled words into the voice memo on my cell phone:

The sky is turning autumn blue
Oh my! what a wondrous hue
the only thing I want to do -
is sit beneath it now with you
