Early Morning Light

It was chilly when I got downtown 
early Saturday morning. I pulled my jacket closer 
around me as I walked over to Starbucks, 
a couple blocks away.
On the way, I saw these lighted flowers,
glowing with color against the gray morning.
When I came back an hour later,
the bright, happy flowers were gone, replaced
by purple cabbages.
Even though the calendar told me fall
was just about a week away,
the nurserymen digging away in the giant pots, 
confirmed that colder weather is near.
