nature slows right down
plants will start their Autumn rest
as Summer wanes.

green then disappears
chlorophyll leaches away
gold and red glow bright.

squirrels gather food
as frost nips at tiny feet
building Winter stocks.

now the leaves can fall
Autumn sees their dive for earth
skeletons have stayed.

canopy all gone
only branches now remain
to rustle no more.
