Shades (Day 201)

shades of neighborhood 
we see day in day out 
these gardens parks 
forests swaying gently 
in the valley's breath 
gnarled from resisting 
mountainside Novembers
chestnuts clover green
blue tinged sycamores 
maples dark as merlot
gathering a harvest 
of white heat billowing
deep into the night
from concrete ribbons 
draped about their roots
