Fall in New Mexico is ripening to gold.
Leaves are falling off of the trees.
The light is shifting in the skies.
Early this morning,
I heard the rain falling, and wasn't sure if it was the leaves.
When I woke up, I was at the airport,
looking at the clouds hanging low over the mountains
in the pre-dawn darkness.
A few hours later,
I found myself in a place that has no fall leaves!
I don't think I am in New Mexico anymore!
