It’s raining in Portland
and the light 
is distinctively fall
I played with my camera
taking pictures of the
changing leaves
and puddles
as Lucy ate the tomatoes
that never had time to ripen
some summers 
brush by us
like strangers
never giving us time
to know them at all
this summer
my face stayed 
behind the pages 
of too many books
and the only light it saw 
was from the screen of my laptop
today I
relished the rain
and cool air
wore my favorite sweater
and roasted root vegetables
offering thanks
for the new season
