The coming of fall

The coming of fall

A copper, crimson canopy

Backlit by the sun

Millions of transluscent leaves

Holding on for dear life

To ancient, old tributaries

Branches to another time

Feeding the life into the cover

Each branch reaching for the fall sun

Each leaf struggling to hold on

A battle of wills

To avoid the inevitable fall

And await the winter solstice

So far, the tree is winning

It’s reds and browns showing their strength

Against the might of time

Who will win?

Sun, Tree, Leaves or time?
