Autumnal Blues

I watch you changing colours

in a metamorphic change.

Were once warm and familiar.

now you’re colder and estranged
.

from happiness decaying,

slowly withering inside.

Skeletal your brittle soul

in autumnal blues abides.
,

Scattered your hues resplendent

dance, blown in seasonal brood.

Gloriously you perish

until Spring picks up your mood.
.

As life forever alters,

the dark hours appear so long.

Nature is a magician

in its rebirth you’ll be strong.
