concerning leaves

November 4, 2011

I like raking leaves.

Blisters on my hands and all.

Piled high by the street,

Leaving no room for the car.

 

Maple leaves are best,

More colors than I can count.

Kaleidoscopic

Fireworks without the noises.

 

Gold gives way to green

As leaves pile up by the curb.

Grass hangs on to life

As life is draining from trees.

 

Cathedrals are a

Dim reflection of glory.

Leaves gilding Maples,

Outshine the aurum of Rome.
