"Write a remix poem. Take one or several of your poems,
and make a remixed version that is new."
No dye or paint can match
Ambers, apricots, or crimsons
That nature arrays for
Us in Autumn.
Even in their abdication to a new season,
In lowered heads,
Nod in doe-eyed velvet
And pining petals.
Under leaf-sailing trees, dogs and cats
Trample piles of crunchy leaves.
Unless you keep close watch, you will
Miss squirrels foraging for winter.
Night falls and blankets all of nature's creations.
