Autumn Spilled #Poetry

Brandishing a tarnished rake
piles of leaves, heaps of color
maroons, dried umber, red-gold
rustling wind stirred and plundered

Gray smoke tendrils circle the air
October’s flamed ballet curtain call
riotous canvas adorned gritty earth
painted autumn colors spilled

Acorn capsules, seeds, spiky cones
misty rain, feather soft, on my face
distant train whistle across the river
sycamore tree, gray owls and me
