Transitions

The tress across the river

Were painted in shades

Of red, yellow and orange

Creating a picture

Of a paradigm of Autumn

Reminding us too

That winter is on the way

The winds blow harder

Shaking the trees

Day after day

Until the branches are bare

And the first snowflake falls

Falling Fast

autumn leaves are all around

slowly falling they hit the ground

orange and yellow, brown and red

they fall so the earth can be fed

the leaves decay and become food

a crisp air puts us in the mood

for bonfires and hay rack rides

with those we love at our sides

autumn is the best you see

it’s when my mom gave birth to me
