1. Whispering of trees
  2. Chattering of leaves
  3. Wandering of breeze
  4. Portending of freeze
  5. Lengthening of sleeves
  6. Darkening of eves
  7. Dwindling of weeds
  8. Burrowing of seeds
  9. Orange so deep
  10. Fireplace keep
  11. Blustery sweep
  12. Frost and chill creep
  13. Blistering weep
  14. Harvested reap
  15. Quieted peep
  16. Yawning to sleep

By Kim Siever

I live in Lethbridge with my spouse and 4 of our 6 children. I’m a writer, focusing on political news, social issues, and the occasional poem. My politics are radically left.

I’m also dichotomally Mormon. And I’m a functional vegetarian: I have a blog post about that somewhere around here. My pronouns are he/him, and I’m queer.
