Autumns Story

Coiling quickly the leaves roll
Tumbling towards a new home
Autumn's oranges,reds,and gold
Splatter my view surrounding me

Warmth from the sun steaming
The dewy wet leaves in the morn
So intricately placed in quite a pattern
Delicately across my front lawn

The musty smell of drying leaves
Smoldering through my soul
Leaving images of Soft fuzzy hats
And warm wooly sweaters

Driving towards the mountains
The flame of topaz,amber and sienna
Paint the sky with a backsplash
Contrasting its deep blue hues  

No wonder this season thrills
It's colors changing rapidly
Such a short time left
To witness this seasons circle of life

Quickly I must catch it before its gone
Leaving only small remnants of life
That retires to its bed 
Only to sleep like a bear till spring

    You captured this feeling & setting so well. How interesting that the seasons run so parallel to our lives, leaving us to discover its inner meanings. A very nice writing!
