Beneath the wistful skies, I behold…
the sight of auburn autumn, on my threshold…
Sweeping strokes of the whistling winds, brushing my cheeks….
Under fading warmth of the sun and air, so bleak…
Once brimming with youth, the sunflowers bold….
Now stooping down, growing old….
Once swooning in verdant luscious foliage….
the lovelorn trees now, standing bare in daze….
Lifeless russet leaves swirling in melancholy dance…
Under the beguiling autumn’s trance…
Withered leaves falling one by one to the ground….
Weaving the tapestry of organic brown….
To the cadence of wilted leaves falling in reprise….
I relinquish, let go and swirl like a broken leaf in the autumn of my life…
