Up Fall

It’s the celebration of summer

After the beating sun turned the leaves

To a darker green.

We walk down this path

Look down at the colors

The wild summer’s aftermath

More colorful than all others

Look up at the trees

The vibrant red and yellow

Falling in around me

Making my heart show

All of this beauty

Just for me to see

Wanting to share it

I bring you a leaf

A small fraction

It’s not enough to explain

What I meant by this action

Just another beauty among these leaves

The trees will soon be bare, cold

Lifeless, they will see their

Beauty covered up by the snow

Admire the old, rustic colors

Black and white will soon take over.
