Autumn

A few moments passed
and the leaves began to fall
patching the greenest of
grasses into quilts of red
Maple and yellow Gingko.

 

Seconds later, feather brained
birds become confounded while
contemplating warmer climates
as they taste the changing
season.

 

The last robin pauses
in time to balance upon a

favorite fence or too fast baring

limb in awe as the no 
longer warm grasses vanish
beneath another lawn fading
to shades of crumbling
brown.
