Drifting into Autumn
(6 Micro Poems including Haiku)

a nip in the air
swirling to my feet
one blushing leaf


Autumn tiptoes
nudging Summer
out the door


flowers and dreams
the earth churns and mulches
I, a falling leaf


ablaze in autumn
the yellow leaves know
how to burn


blast of wind
the last leaves blow away
leave me barren


tell me when
leaves fall and
your heart grieves

I will crush them
under my feet and
turn them into mulch

                   In Repose

I thought I could catch leaves
as they flurried down trees
where the summer sun
had painted them green just yesterday

when they were laden with
liquid imagination, suspended
from moist branches drenched
in dew

but seasons change
frost must replace droplets of dew
and I must let the leaves go
as they will

to follow their course
to be turned in the winter soil
of soft sorrow as they mourn
the passing of color and wait
in quietude for
a new beginning.
