Autumn’s good drying,
life takes a rest,
an overdue vacation,
the harvest’s abundance,
Autumn’s fruit falling,
celebrates an ending,
death’s silent promise
no end in returning.

clothes whip and crack
on the line, desiccating
Fall’s gentle gusts
deceptive, defying
alive, energetic
living for dying.
colours so vivid
dead leaves a-flying.
