Autumn's Ceremony

There stood an imaginary, invisible houri fairy A bride under a maple tree Dressed in prism-hued layers of chifon in ethereal shimmers and delicate gossamer She having her weeny wedding in the fall And fairy folk bustled about all round her as flimsy and flighty as they could be while red-gold leaves fell down upon her in ceremonial nuptial An autumn's ritual and as nature's pretty confetti! Branches denuded Yet autumn's august for the wilting's ravishing! The willowy fairy almost drowned in gorgeous fallen maple leaves
Playing hide 'n'seek with her brownie groom camouflaged in the heap.

And so she dances through the leaves, caressing the branches as she twists and turns, and cajoles them to do the same.....Great imagery and lovely turn of phrase applied throughout this poem. Love the word gossamer so Ignore Tom's hang-ups. :-)
