Embers...

Artist's Description

Heat bubbling up from below
catches that emanating
from the sun’s surface and bursts
into flame under my feet…
burning like embers stirred by
my passing, they set the ground
ablaze with one last gasp of
color, these stubborn autumn
leaves.
Nearly Winter and they
refuse to die quietly:
how they glow.
Perhaps they think
I will not remember them..
while they ignite like lightning,
showering my eyes with reds
and oranges and yellows:
they make it hard to forget
…K. Dorman

This little tree in my garden is still hanging on to it’s leaves…I stop every day and admire it…it’s freezing, drifts at it’s feet, but still puts on a brave show..soon all the leaves will be gone…right now it’s the last gasp..
