Kohut-Bartels-LS-2

(Watercolor, Jane Kohut-Bartels)

I chase one red leaf

Across dry and brittle grass

Juice of summer gone.

The garden spiders

Fold their black spindly legs,

Die, all work now done.

Pale lavender sky

Balances the moon and sun

The scale shifts to night.

 —

 Fallen leaves crackle.

Sparrows add the treble notes.

Season’s musical.

 —

Dogwoods blooming

The crucifixion appears

White moths in the night.

— 

Fall’s crispness compels

Apples to tumble from trees.

Worms make the journey.

 —

 The frost at morning

Makes the birds plump their feathers

Squirrels add chatter.

— 

 A swirl of blossoms

Caught in the water’s current

Begins the season.

 

The cold moon shines down

Upon hollow dried grasses.

Earth prepares to sleep.
