A Forest Fire For Sure

I am sitting at my campsite watching my wind spinners frantically 
trying to keep up with a wind who is fierce in her work out today.
Millions of leaves cover my yard; at least six pick-up loads of them.
Left by me, as I like to shuffle through them months later.

I want a fire desperately but know I cannot have one as I watch
my exuberant dog rolling in the oak, elm, and walnut leaves.
It would be a forest fire for sure right now. Everything would go!
As the wind throws buckets of leaves into the air.

I smile to myself. It is as if they have a life of their own, 
slinging and sailing into the air flow, in a joyous happy way.
My wind spinners are going flat out fast now, spinning their colors.
Reds, blues, yellows, oranges, and pinks. Matching the wind’s mood.

I like this one; I can see those leaves having a ball and the spinners dancing to the wind's tune. Beautiful!

I was watching the yard dance, and I was in awe of her!
