Autumn Blitz

I stared in silent wonder,
As autumn rolled in like thunder-
And in a lightening's flash,
Started my world on fire!

The trees burned brightly in,
Sunset and smokey grey hues-

The leaves lept down from the trees,
And quickly spread the news!

The wind whistled through the woods,
And swept the ground-
And wailed!

It tickled the grass,
And seized the leaves-
And up!
And away, they sailed!

Leafy flames,
Of vibrant flare-
Lept up here!
And, over there!

The fire,
It stripped the trees-
Leaving them cold,
And bare!

Then the wind,
It hummed...

And the fire,
It died down.

All of nature,
Was now beautifully crowned.

The wind-
It let out a sigh,
It shuddered-
Then it died.

There was heared no sound,
For the fire had passed.

No hint of it,
Was left to last-
But the embers which blanketed the floor.

    This reminds me of the martyrs who proclaimed the good news fearlessly.
