Autumn

By Anonymous


Thoughts while rustling through newly fallen oak & maple leaves


Alas it’s Autumn in full swing

The Maples and Oaks

Deliberately abandoning their foliage

The air is cool, crisp, inviting.


I meander through the fallen leaves

Struck by their elegance

Their Grace, their complexity

Their significance.


Once green and majestic

Taking in the sun’s light

Synthesizing foods

From water and carbon dioxide.


I contemplate the science of

Photosynthesis

And how they use chlorophyll to

Generate the oxygen we breathe without a thought.


Newly brown, and other assorted fading colors

Lying on the ground

Randomly joining hands

Their work is not finished.


I quickly recall Frost

And his epical Stopping By Woods

His words “lovely, dark and deep

And miles to go before I sleep."
