The Death of Another Season

The Death of Another Season

A Poem by Mark
"

I will miss Autumn

"
We bid Autumn good bye
with naked trees defiantly
waiting for Wind to 
clothe them in ice, snow.
Their once bright leaves now cracked
lie brown as they return to the Earth.

The Shadows of winter whisper in the wind
of chilling sleep and white
powder blankets to fall
from the sky.

Chuckling, the numbing breezes
are sucked into our lungs
releasing cold ghosts
giving our heat; to no avail.

The Sun has once more grown tired
and rests in other parts of the world
biding time and giving us to the night
for now.

Chuckling, the numbing breezes

releasing cold ghosts
giving our heat; to no avail.

Vivid imagery, I liked this, especially:

"releasing cold ghosts

giving our heat; to no avail."
