Autumn Leaves

Autumn trees

shed leaves like half-forgotten

shaking off the past
to reveal their naked truth

in wintry silence wait to be reborn

We toss those piebald leaves
in wild abandonment

delight in scrunching them between our toes

It must feel nice to be an autumn tree
flinging off its clothes and shouting … look at me!


 Mandy Gayle Edwards 2013 (c)

Spring hath long passed on

summer but a sigh
autumn leaves compost
sheets of rain fall
somewhere it is snowing

Winter is nigh.
