September Roses

September Roses

I am startled,
taken by surprise
when in late September
I see two roses open.
I can't believe my eyes.

I had no idea
they were in season 
when the air 
begins to cool,
when tree leaves
start to match
the color of
their blooms.

I may pass them by
when they are out
earlier in the year,
but in the fall, I'll linger
anytime a rose appears.
