Autumn

“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.”
~ Albert Camus

Autumn
..
loving
underdogs
as I do
it’s easy to fall
in love with Autumn
..when
trees in disarray
begin publicly disrobing
in pallid shades of greens
ochres, chartreuse,
deep puce, vermilions
and golden …..
in riotous showers
carpeting in an all out display
of kissing the very ground
they stand
upon

……then
almost naked
branches boughs
sturdy and brown
proudly gleam
in the sun
as nature
oiled nubile
bodies
leanly
sculpted

..
