Brilliant

Citrus element shades
Of color exploding
Fall sheds her summer coat
Fading green into brilliance.
What once cast shade
Now covers the earth
As the life bleeds out
Leaving brown dust.
The feet tread on colors
Grinding them into earths crust
From whence they came
To regenerate new soil so rich.
I smile at the beauty I see
And long for the return
Spring greens trumpet
New seasons once more.
But she has her moment
Sweet Fall a show complete
Red carpet ready turns
To anorexic naked branch of winter
Before the snow-white blanket
comes to call.
