Nature's Canvas

 

Once vibrant green, now red, yellow, brown: they fall one by one

in the gentle breeze, painting the lawn with nature’s mosaic of autumn.

I’ve nurtured my essence, exhaled freshness, and shaded the creatures below.

Now I leave, allowing rebirth from where I’ve been and to where I go.

 

Pesky, messy, make me work. My back aches;

Next year, I’m cutting this monstrosity down.

 

Look! It’s magical! Run- hear the crackle?

Pile them up! Jump! Roll! Hide: Pop up:

“Surprise!”

 

Mmm. Dinner’s ready. I hear my call each fall to reclaim the bounty, breaking its gift back to its birth in earth.

 

Ah, now I rest from summer’s dependence on me; I gather to greet the earth, shining brightly in my last gift to all.
