A sweet sigh of Autumn

falling and sleepy are the leaves
Autumn turning slowly
shades of green to amber
littering sidewalks

with footprints of fragile
leading winters march
calling her name
all too soon…..

branches not near naked
tantalising with dances
of torment and tease
not ready to bare limbs

taste of dew on
leaves of almost gone
with crispy, crunch
of what’s to come
blizzards of …..
cold and frosty morn

mother nature needs her rest
evergreens smile for always
with a gentle wink of
sleepiness .. … dormant
and stillness needed

at peace with warmed soil
soaking earthy wholeness
of nature’s smile
a sigh and a breath
she gasps….
just moments
before she sleeps

rest….
sweet
mother nature
rest….
