"i am autumn"....

~*i am autumn.....

~gliding upon solstice dance floors,
tripping the light fantastic with
dapper breezes dressed in grey

~tiptoeing across canopies,
tinting emerald faces to
blushing reds,
and spilling golden hues upon
shivering aspens....

~stealing at midnight
across pumpkin smiles,
brushing them with
sugar-fine frost,
while painting icy fractals
upon un-expecting window panes...

~lending tartness to apple delights
that dangle in trees fully ripe,
yearning to become warm cider..

~erasing crimson petals from
roses that that fall... garden floors,
bees still seeking their
last sweet kiss of death...

~stroking the horizon with
artistic brush, dipped in ocean's
angry snarl....
...allowing october's sky
to give birth to a golden
harvest child...

~leaving forgotten feathered beds,
mourning doves escape upon
updrafts of cordial southern wind
~tucking spent butterflies gently
into chrysalis blankets,
lulling them into dream-filled
slumber of winter.

~spreading earth's bountiful seeds..
..maize, dried in butter-colored
nuggets for crow's delight...
....maple-seed spinners, plummeting
to mate with soil.... spores rush to become
truffled treasure...

forever changing....
..i am autumn...
