NATURE'S SHOW

A poem by Deanna Roux


they come down
like rain
colorful drops

like butterflies
floating
to the ground

light and busy
wind carries
crab-walk by

lovely turns
messy and soaked
don't slip

branches void
vibrant dulls
crunch underfoot

nature's show
closing act
rakes and piles

crispy air
frosty blades
sequel soon

Mmmmmm...
Makes me wanna just plop down on one of those steps and swoosh those leaves up in a snowstorm of color!
Just beautiful!
