red leaves

brought on by bright orange and yellow
golden sun burning
turning seasons
turning colors

she gets dark crimson
after blood red berry
no fruit in her leaves
except moods for my eyes

a spectrum of surprise
down the color wheel
around rings on trees
arms and branched fingers

if only fall could linger

red never stays
she leaves like green
just faster

One thought on “red leaves
