here is a poem i wrote a few years back.. it seems fitting for this time of year.. .enjoy...ahem!

Spilling the blood of Autumn

This is a classic tale of war
An Inevitable meeting of colossal giants
That can only end with one victor

Stoic generals lead their multicolored regiments
From their vantage point
They spot the invading army,
And brace for the initial assault
Fast and unforgiving,
The full force of the charging army is displayed
The first round of soldiers fall
Feeling the icy grip of the harbinger of death
Unyielding advances pick off soldiers with every pass
Catapulting their lifeless forms in the air
And covering the ground
In a rainbow death shroud

Holding their positions
The generals are captured where they stand
Helpless soldiers scatter to the wind
Hoping to escape the ensuing torment
The prisoners of war,
Once alive with vibrant colors
Have been reduced to skeletons,
Silhouettes against somber blue grey skies
The only sign of life marked by
Subtle trembling, a fear induced action
Brought on by the force of relentless attacks
From the sidelines they watch in horror
As soldiers fall one by one
Victims of the bombardiers in the sky
Letting loose their arsenals
Of pelting bullets
And smothering cover fire

The last leaf limps along,
Crimson red against the falling snow
Ragged and torn, it does not falter
In a final hurrah, the soldier
Unknowingly pens its own epitaph,
As its path is etched in the frozen battlefield
Battered and broken, it succumbs to its fate
And just as the warriors that fell before
It too will disappear,
Beneath a blanket of white
