Once Upon A Time…

Once Upon A Time image of imagination

Once Upon A Time

In a time long ago

I was young like you

Believed in fairy tales

Imaginary

Tall ships with bright silver sails

And carpets that flew

But then I grew, and realized

I no longer had child’s eyes

Lives Of Leaves

Fallen leaves

Once prominent

A vibrant crown of glory

Rustling and bustling

Sheltering new life on high

And offering shade

Now a colorful blanket

Looked down upon

Trampled without thought, deemed useless

Until wind carries them away

Tree Talk

Trees

Trees seen whispering

To the fading grass below

“It’s that time again.

Leaves are preparing.

Who’ll be first to fall,

And cover you with color,

Smothering your blades,

Saturating the landscape

With variegated patchwork?”

Sighting September

Moonlit night

August tried to warn

Us of her impending move.

She sent us cool drafts,

Chilling memos of warning.

Yet, wrapped in sweaters

We missed her exiting.

Undercover of night,

With just the moon as witness,

Fall bearing September came.
