Golden pink-tinged light colors my bedroom as it peeks through the sliver in the drapes. Stirring from a deep sleep, it is not yet six am as the house is cold and the heater has not come on.
Welcome to fall in Arizona- cold mornings, warm sunny afternoons, cold nights. Still, I much prefer this to snow any day.
Even through the insulated windows, I hear the faint sound of early morning birdsong. A flock of doves must be high in the mesquite, worshipping the rising sun with their coos.
amid falling leaves
singing in autumn sunrise-
clanging copper chimes
