Artist of Between

Toronto's October -

month 'twixt burnt umber and ice,

About these ads

tenth son

of the descending year,

teeters on the edge of seasons,

balancing between

last flow of leaf-gold finesse

and first frost-white on shingle green.

Toronto's October

About these ads

pauses now between

fall vision and winter vigor,

color and crackle,

slither and serene;

unhurried one;

diplomat of the year's twelve sons,

ministering through smaller and bigger.
