Autumn's Grief

Rating: 5.0
A tree once golden now dies,
her bones now marrowless.
Her blood holds only goodbyes,
Behold! life in its narrowness.

The falling of her leaves I cannot bare,
for their veins are shriveled and dry,
uttering their lifeless prayers
as they fill the rotting sky.

Five hundred summers scorched her,
yet those memories she suppressed,
though by tears of flame tortured;
with whispering corpses she's found rest.

I couldn't decide on a title for this poem because I wrote it for a story I'm writing. The name fits (though you may not understand it) but anyway... sigh

enjoy!

This is both really sad and really beautiful. You've taken a natural moment of sadness, within the life cycle, and made it come alive (more so than it is) . For me this poem has a touch of magic to it, or at least the pure beauty of nature.
