falling leaves (for Susie)

the leaves are coming down
for Susie
she will not rake them up

they fall in colours


and rosy red

covering the green
with shades of warm

a pillow for her head
a blanket for her bed
we’ll heap them high for her

Susie raked them
year on year
but now
that time has passed
as fleeting as Autumn days
that lead to Winter

and she
won’t rake them
though they still tumble
through the air

the leaves
coming down
for Susie

  1. Loving the way that you put your pictures that are aesthetically taken with your acumen photographic skills into your beautiful piece of poetry. I like the way that both of these aspects jive together very well. Hope to see more from you. Have hope, write on!
