AUTUMN OAK
(11/14/19)


sunrises
through the tree
in November
are quite
spectacular

the changing
hues of the sun
filtered
through the orange
yellow
and fading green
foliage

then add
a little wind
to lend movement
to the process

quite
the light show
is created

unrivaled
by any manmade
attempts

oh
I am sure
that AI
can come
remarkably
close

even with
the sound
of rustling
leaves

but where
then
the earthy
smell
of dying
vegetation

the feel
of hard bark

a soft
breeze
on the
face

to tell us

that we
are living
within
a larger
cycle?

our own
smaller one
ending much
too soon
