autumn leaves swirl and dance,
when a gentle breeze chooses and
regards the fallen heroes. the colors
of the day permeate the trees as the
sun filters through the jungle of leaves
amassed in the moment. squirrels
decorate the flooring of the earth
unsettling leaves to hide their prize.
a variety of birds reside in the branches
and in the thicket and thatched nests,
living and singing in harmony with
nature. the world is in constant flux,
the fall leaves and colors leave a
memory pushing one forward.
