More leaves leave – prose version

More leaves leave

⁃ prose

The leaves fell from the trees in droves; it behoves me to say that this proves nothing; Autumn has shoved Summer into the past and has taken hold; will autumn last for a while? Yes. Yet, eventually, Autumn, too, will be relegated into the past, and then… well then comes Winter, and we shall see what that brings.

More leaves leave – poetry version

More leaves leave

⁃ poetry version

The leaves fell from the trees in droves;

it behoves me to say

that this proves nothing;

Autumn has shoved Summer into the past

and has taken hold;

will autumn last for a while?

Yes. Yet, eventually,

Autumn, too, will be relegated into the past, and then…

well then comes Winter,

and we shall see what that brings.

A Leaf

A leaf fell from on high

to on low

the only way it knew to go.

Autnumb

I feel so numb

now that Autumn is here.

Take Summer Sun fast receding

into the dim and distant past,

seemed cooler this year,

and it’s as if Autumn had already been here

for many months.

Once, the Summers were hot – once.

And autumn was not;

but, maybe seasons can cast to type,

if we dare to ignore

Autnumbthe anti-apocalypse hype.

Leaves without trees

Leaves without trees,

and trees without leaves;

the Autumn and the Wind

are such seasonal thieves.

.

Gone are the thick coats of summer,

and barely they stand

or they fall;

leaves without trees,

cling to their memories,

and trees without leaves

wait the call.

I was walking along, when …

I was walking along,

when a leaf, from off of.a tree,

landed upon my head,

damaging me –

I was concussed?

Nobody fussed

over my supine body,

but, other leaves soon joined in,

tapping a cacophonous threnody

upon my broken pate;

at this rate, I’ll be

the mound of the fallen zero –

more a landmark,

less a hero.

The Day After Autumn Arrives

“Leaves! Leaves! Leaves!

No one believes

the amount of leaves

that will fledge from the trees;

and fall upon my garden.”

.

“Pardon?”

.

“Oh, nothing – it’s just work for me to do.”

.

“Would you rather they did levitate?”

.

“No … probably not.”

.

“Good. Now just get on with your task –

it’s all I ask.”

.

“Thanks, G! Perhaps you could lend a hand?”

.

“Okay.”

.

.

And the winds did blow

And the leaves did fall

And so I chased after them –

And G looked down

smiled

and had a ball.

Awesome Autumn

Autumn is …

awesome,

that’s all I can say,

as I just used the similarities

of the words

to fuel my word play.

In Autumn / The Fall

In Autumn,

a leaf fell;

in the Fall,

it also fell;

be it one or the other,

the result was the same:

the first to fall,

I have found,

presages a general

leaf fest upon the ground.

Nadelik Lowen Haiku

“Nadelik Lowen!”

I called to all the people.

“Kynnyav yw!” they cried.
