the season of descent

when summer’s raiment falls to earth
wilting life is giving birth

corn husks litter stubble fields
winter moans the fall it yields

fallow nests await next spring
summer sails on eider’s wings

days are lean as sunflowers list
frost clings about in sapphire mist

tulips sleep in pregnant peace
ascension yet beyond their reach

honks announce broad flocks of geese
suet hangs for chickadees

scare-crows mock black-winged beasts
pumpkins bake for harvest’s feasts

choirs of trees stand stark and mum
the season descends..............................awaits the sun

Beautiful post, author beautifully explained nature in words. who does not love nature and anything written for nature is worth reading.
