Autumn Trees

January 19, 2009

Fabricated tick tocks
beat against each fallen leaf
fading with forgotten hues.

Stellar dreams no longer effortless
thrash in vindictive tears tearing
at the knot preventing sudden death,

but where have the trusted hopes gone:
sunken into grey along with the sparks
blackening skin to keep warm.

All that’s left are the entwining
broken branches of forfeited dreams
waiting to be rooted once more.

  8. This is a beautiful poem and your words transition us from a tree’s fall season into winter very nicely. I can only wish for those beautiful colors to return again in the spring. Thanks for sharing. Have a nice day.
