The Dark Season

With one mighty gust
wind sent
maple leaves horizontal
flashbacks of summer gone
in russet flecks
soon to be skeletons
decomposing

sun’s love
photosynthesized
color turned
its passion burned out
flown to ground
to be buried
with the rest

to nourish
winter grass
that grows green
in the dark
season
