Autumn Leaves

Swirling in the air,
nature’s confetti
fallen to the ground,
a slumber party –

The color of mangoes
against the green grass,
a painter’s vision
of beautiful trash.

Drenched by rain,
blown by breeze,
always trampled on,
Autumn leaves.

Hear the crunch,
feel the wrinkles,
trace the lines
that twinkle

in the sun.
Sparkles and shines
from green to gold to red,
a chameleon of time.
