~ Autumn's Breath ~

Bright Crayola colors
dance 'pon the lawn
leaves gently waltzing
in rust, yellow and brown

Birds have flown south
skies dim and grey
everything wilting
and fading away

Squirrels are busy
gathering their food
reflections of winter
coming real soon

Trees standing naked
awaiting first snow
Autumn's breath escapes
air chilly and cold

The clock ticks away
in stillness of night
Suzie snowflake arrives
dressed in pure white

Roadways and sidewalks
show mirrored displays
mountains await
where skiers can play

Fireplace glowing
warm cocoa in hand
outside, wind is whistling
an uncertain chant

Gloomy, depressing
so eerie and dark
when spring is reborn
new life will spark
