Just Whispered

The breath of the universe

Blowing gently through the leaves

They blushed

And let go

For this moment

I, too

Am a tree turning red

A little yellow

A bit orange

Every illusion drifting


Blown away

My branches are barren

All bark and odd angles showing

I wait in the autumn sun

For my white cloak

Limbs lifted in praise

For the cold and dark

For the bright cool light

Longer still

For the warmth of spring
