Bereavements

When fall winds tear and twist sere leaves,
those falling leaves leave trees bereft.
Summer plumps up fleshy leaves
too soon transformed to severed leaves
falling like tears. The shriveled leaves
are drained of green and gold. Bereft.
When fall winds tear and scatter leaves,
those fallen leaves leave me bereft.
