Walking Alone

So often I've walked these paths with friends. Another year draws to a close. The green will soon fade, changing to russet. A sharper sun as autumn shuffles in to shorten days. Eventually the branches will be bare, skeletal. The frost will harden the trails where only the surefooted will climb.

In a few weeks, there will be a snow-blown silence, the woods filled with an icy breath.
