Yellow Leaves Falling Like Butterflies

yellow leave fall from the trees
like butterflies in the wind 
from the limbs swaying mildly in my backyard

looking out my side door
from my hot den sweating
from the heat of summer
under my luke warm fan
doing the best that it can
to cool me off 
I'm sweaty and clammy

the tall uncut grass
catches the yellow leaves
still falling wildly as i look
at the path the deers make
coming onto my property staring at me
through the sliding glass door
mesmerized by me sitting
on the daybed watching her beauty
before she runs off into the safety of my woods
