be still and fall

is the orange i see


into the pulsing, green of things

a blessing

or a time to

be still

and know that autumn

always falls curling

the edges of sunshine soaked things

angled daylight spotlighting


a shade between

blazing red maples

and yellow aspen

waiting for the day

they tumble

to the ground

grateful to become


then remembered

in the spring
