Autumn’s Futility

Flowers blossom in spring
but leaves flower in autumn
painting gold and saffron
brown- red and pink too.

Then comes the whistling gush
bursting with chill and vigor
How heavenly colours
dance their way down.

And dyes the ground
to find the lover’s spectacle
and the painter’s inspiration
for it’s a musing muse.

Those last shades-clinging
swaying weakly and ready to fall
Yet so beautiful and patient
waits for the passing wind.

They sail down in joy 
but to wither and rot
Winter’s coming
and summer’s not faraway!
