The Great Pumpkin Waltz

Here’s a poem for today

TheĀ Great Pumpkin Waltz

A gust of cool wind blows through the air along a path of trees
Their looming branches getting caught in the breeze
Pairs of leaves fall off in innumerable waves

Journeying across the sky
catching the sunlight
flying to their destination on the ground

Each gust is a flood of color
Making spectacles with ruby and umber
Leaves dancing on this their dying day

Throngs tango toward sidewalks
Oranges and yellows practice their waltz
Each one celebrating their liberty

This is their chance to be free
Doing boxstep and jives, go these wonderful leaves
Giving their cheers to the fall
