(g) OctaTimbre/ Migration or Hibernation? (10.2)

Migration or Hibernation?
(an OctaTimbre/ new form)

Looking out the picture window
Yellows and reds brush amid greens
First day of October: crip air
Has summer finally let go?
Still plenty of time for playing
Out of doors and catching sun rays,
Though plenty of garden work waits.
Adjusted clothing layers and
Time to ready the winter wear –
Maybe think of hibernation?
