Fall Cleaning

Autumn leaves
Absorb the sun's color
And drift quietly to earth.
The wind gathers them up and
Carries them swiftly away,
Packing up summer
Into the attic
And making room
In the house
For winter.


(April 2010 Poem-A-Day Challenge
Prompt #6:  Ekphrastic Poem)


Happy First Day of Autumn, from my yard to yours!
