Gold Falls

Gold Falls
Jay Ratterree

Gold crests the leaves

Silver crests the waters

Bronze crests the sturdy, perfect bridge

 

Rippling rapids breach my ears

The birds chirp with beauty

The crunch of brittle autumn leaves stirs the chipmunk to a scurry 

 

The mist brushed my face with a soft wind

My face warmed with the rays of the sun

To a crisp burn

 

I smell the apple cider and the autumn air

As the summer turns to fall

And the leaves dance from the trees

Like the running water beneath me

 

But when the leaves meet the ground they never return to their branch

The gold falls and withers and turns to dust
