Last of the Fall Leaves = November is Upon Us – The Memory of Trees


The Memory of Trees

Memory fades in and out

with colors of leaves turning

from green to golden yellow, flame orange, then red to,

russet rattles clinging – destined

To fly when the rains come.

The wind blows away

All the reminiscence of summer’s blooms

and shading bowers of trees.

Empty vines tap against the window

the Morse code of November.

Sculpted branches reach out

in a clear pale blue sky

Get Ready! Remember.

The snow is coming.

Thank you for stopping by the kitchen!

  2. Hello, Kunstkitchen! A pleasure to meet you! 🙂 Thank you for stopping by my blog. Your blog name intrigued me, because of the “kunst” part. I just read your poem “Last of the Fall Leaves” and felt immersed in your descriptive words of the changing of colours and how the leaves then “fly” when the time comes. “Sculpted branches reach out,” “the shading bowers of trees,” and the “Morse Code of November.” So much beautiful music in your words. 🙂 Thank you for the song. Your words described how I feel in the fall and watch the leaves give their final dances.
