filling the gap


and what,
with the first ornament
already in place,
the christmas trees
popping up around town,
the hallelujah chorus playing
(even avi is learning it; 
yesterday she saw her
halloween costume,
"hallelujah!"
"halloween, avi, halloween")
and there was just one thing
we still lacked.


and today mother nature
filled in the gap.
now it feels right.

I can't believe Christmas is around the corner... how did that happen? I don't even remember summer or fall happening...
