Still Life with Bare Branches

bare branches
a painting against the blue sky
leaves under my feet

bare branches
vibrant leaves drift on the wind
summer has been shed

a painting against the blue sky
raven-black brush marks
nature’s autograph

leaves under my feet
crackling pool of red and gold
rotting to russet
