Red Herring of Lapsing Time


Fall’s felicitous red herring —
the mystery of leaves morphing.
The autumnal applause fairing.
Verdant heat and daylight dwarfing.

The horologic ticker chimes,
as lines are drawn on pumpkins patched.
Gramps, it’s apple picking time. 
The scarecrow’s wise with balding thatch.

Forensic crisp of maple leaves —
Children foolishly blinded by
the crimson and yellow dervish
heap...how quickly green does die.

Snowy bonnet soon covers plot —
arthritically profound.
The creaky ice of knees and knots
embellish the grownups’ playground.

Sought are the days of yesteryear —
chirping of birds and childhood friends,
standing aloft swing with no fear,
ascending where sunlight transcends.

    Wow! I couldn't believe that this poem was only 100 words when I got to the bottom. So rich in imagery, and such a wise swath of experience covered, all in just 100 words. Bravo! Cheers, gw
