Linger down good ol’ Briggsmore or McHenry;

sun-bathed tulip trees and queen palms line these

rarely wet streets plastered with autumns’ leaves.

Murmurations of starlings eclipse Scenic’s foothills.

    You have painted a spiced, wet picture and I was transported to it. This was moody, flavored, infused. Fine, fine poem. :)
