leaves

And then without warning – fire!

They waved their hands, thousands strong.

All alight in bronze, gold, and scarlet,

Glowing as if painting the sky,

Normally a scudding grey,

With their passion.

And then without warning – gone!

The light eclipsed as suddenly as it came

And the whole world felt dark.

    Miss,
    Pardon the interruption; I only wish to tell you that this poem was breath-taking! I thoroughly enjoyed your imagery and the adjectival steps you utilized.

    Kindest Regards
