Daily Prompt: Autumn Leaves

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/autumn-leaves/

I’m not very good at making poems rhyme, but hey, they don’t have to. Enjoy.

Temperatures drop,
But my heart warms up.

Canopies bare,
A carpet of leaves.

A change of season
Means a change of colours.

Green fades to red,
Fades to orange,
To yellow.
To brown.
They die,
They fall down.
While the corners of my mouth rise upwards.

As there is in life,
There is a beauty in death.

The flames of a million candles are snuffed,
But this fire can be rekindled.
