Autumn Rhapsody

Autumn Rhapsody

she weeps fallow fronds,
flushed crimson, vermillion,
sienas, ochres,
yearning for cool eventide’s
frosted plunge, and dreams of spring

Autumn Leaves

pressed impressions of
folioles  and rose petals
between leather-bound
leaves of pulpy cellulose,
harvested fronds from the fall

fading memories
once fragrant, verdant, now parched
crumbling  to dust

~kat
