145. To the Stars Through Difficulties: Cheryl Unruh

Summer has passed in the Flint Hills
but few mourn the loss.
As seasons change
hands, the color wheel spins.
Green slithers back into the earth
and sumac turns to flame.
The sun hits at an angle now,
its light harsh and sharp,
slicing open
the skin of autumn.
