Autumn Fade

Autumn-Leaves-Sunset-1280x960

Crumbling leaves
Caught up in webs
Dangle down
By the water’s edge

Wisps of wind
Scatter lost vibrance
Leaving behind traces
Of faded brilliance

Fragile clusters
Find safe harbor
Hiding in crevices
Of nearby arbors

Such fragments are
The memories of life
Reminding us of
Pain and strife

Natures curse
Flourishes once again
A dismal season
Now begins

Pieces of a masterpiece
Flitter away
Remnants of
A forgotten yesterday
