Autumn šŸšŸ

Beneath the wistful skies, I beholdā€¦
the sight of auburn autumn, on my thresholdā€¦

Sweeping strokes of the whistling winds, brushing my cheeksā€¦.
Under the fading warmth of sun and air, so bleakā€¦

Once brimming with youth, the sunflowers boldā€¦.
Now stooping down and
growing oldā€¦.

Once swooning in verdant luscious foliageā€¦.
the lovelorn trees now, standing bare in dazeā€¦.

Lifeless russet leaves swirling in melancholy danceā€¦
Under the beguiling
autumn’s tranceā€¦

Withered leaves falling one by one to the groundā€¦.
Weaving the tapestry of organic brownā€¦.

To the cadence of wilted leaves falling in repriseā€¦.
I relinquish, let go and swirl like a broken leaf in the autumn of my lifeā€¦
