Photo a Day 16. Something You Wrote

I took the photo of this gorgeous tree which inspired me to write a poem. Here is something I wrote...

Autumn Leaves
by Cheri Marks

I awake to the raining celebration of leaves,
giving up the weight and beauty of attention.
Paper fire in sunlight,
you ignite the sky.

In your final journey to the ground
I hear your whispered secrets
as you skitter across the sidewalks,
dancing to the music of the breeze.

How often have I frolicked in your bed
within our sounds of crunchy laughter
and autumn's perfect perfume
imprinted on my skin?

Beautiful leaves of autumn how brief your rich display.
