the leaves have disappeared

Posted on Updated on

the leaves have disappeared

from the trees


a few remain

s     a     e     ed

.  c     tt     r

amongst the grass

losing its form

brown seeping through the green

squishing under my every step


I have now reached the sidewalk

whose color mimics that of the sky above

a lone red leaf lays flat

stuck to the grisly gray surface

creating a stark distinction between fall and winter


I hesitate

not wanting to step on it

not wanting to embrace the turning of the season

holding strong to the colors of fall

that are slowly escaping

and bringing about them change
