autumn

November gently
Eases mind
Into instant
reveries
~
Beauty arrives
With autumn
In multi colored
Finery
~
Pirouetting
Coquettishly
Awhile
Prior
~
to
finally
Disintegrating
Leaves that flamed
Flaring bright gold
Oranges magentas
Now scrunch underfoot
In faded egg yolk colors
Biting dust
~
Taking life
On my chin
I boldly bite
Into it, better
To mulch and chew
My “nows” eschewing
All my disgruntled
could’ve
should’ve
been
“Rues”
~
