Falling Leaves


                                                                                                                                           
Falling leaves…

                                                                                                                                        Underfoot      

                                                                                                                                        (crunch)

 

                                                                                                                                            Falling leaves

                                                                                                                                                    In the air

                                                                                                                                                    (rustle)

 

                                                                                                                                            Hills afire

                                                                                                                                        with autumn’s palette

                                                                                                                                            Splotches of orange…

                                                                                                                                                    …of yellow

                                                                                                                                                    …of red

                                                                                                                                            Blue Ridge,

                                                                                                                                                    Not so blue.

 

                                                                                                                                            Sinews of steel

                                                                                                                                                    Through the mountains

                                                                                                                                        (glistening)

                                                                                                                                        (singing)

 

                                                                                                                                            Monsters of power

                                                                                                                                                    Riding their brakes

                                                                                                                                                    (whining)

                                                                                                                                                    holding back their load.

                                                                                                                                                    (struggling)

 

                                                                                                                                            The air is heavy

                                                                                                                                                    With the spirit

                                                                                                                                                    Of the coming winter.

                                                                                                                                            The spirit whispers, “Soon.”

 

                                                                                                                                            You realize…

                                                                                                                                                    (wistfully)

                                                                                                                                                    Summer is gone.

 

                                                                                                                                            Falling leaves.

                                                                                                                                       

                                                                                                                                            Eric Miller, 2008
