The leaves have all turned and now fall slowly like snow flakes of yellow, orange and deep purple….soon this fall spectacle will be over. The color erased from the gritty city leaving only shades of grey in its wake. The parks will be empty as the city dwellers hurry by to get to their destinations. No stopping in the cold. No relaxing on park benches in an oasis that shields you from the hustle and bustle of city streets. Soon this park will serve only as reminder of a time passed and season that will return after the cold.
