brush of fall

the old maple has grown tall with age
its branches are layered in green
little leaves that turn upward
to drink a gentle rain
its roots twist and turn
beneath earth's dirt
they bask in
summer's
sun
    
September's air touches much like death
the tree shivers beneath her breath
and strips itself free of leaves
as they dance in her wind
colorful splashes
yellow, orange,
red... turn
brown

    OH MY, you were so clever doing it this way. I have been racking my brain how to do one on aging, and I wish I had thought to use the metaphor of trees. this is excellent. One of my favorites. I am seeing lots of good ones on this topic. He came up with an inspiring contest!
