Autumn Leaves

Leisurely adrift in downward decent,
underneath midday's autumn sky
Donned amber tinges casting to red,
fluttering wayfarers seemingly fly

Whisked lofty scatterings aimlessly fall;
wind's spiraled gusting spins them round
Clustered colors shedding off trees,
amassed in layers blanketing ground

Hither swoops guiding leafy flight,
briskly rustlings in shifting gales
Shuffled yield swooshes from underfoot;

crumpled crackling heard along the trails

Crispy crinkled brittle leaves go crunch;
rifled swishing sweeps ripples through all
Seasons all lead one into the next;
winter springs to summer after each fall
