I saw a leaf float past my window
and it reminded me that the autumn, fall,
is on it way, as summer begins to peel away
and those lovely warm evenings fade to grey
and those green leaves, at least those that remain,
will turn into a fiery red display
and those that fall start going brown and crisp,
ready for decay.
As autumn, fall comes natures colours put on a resplendent display,
in an effort to try and brighten up darker days,
and echo warmth in times of cold,
many are striking and many are bold,
it reminds me that I must pay
more attention at natures array,
that contrast to the chiaroscuro sky,
showing that this is not a time when all flowers die,
some in this time truly strive and invigorate,
the scene before my eyes
and leaves me happy and full of hope.
in a way i have not known.
