autumn (english 2 creative writing)

A Poem by allison

The color drains from the ground
escaping beneath the soil
nearly every leaf in sight departs from their native trees
I swing in my hammock
I take a deep breath and can smell nearby bonfires
I imagine the fire crackling
breathing new life into the aspects of the Earth that have left for Autumn
I step down
the blanket of dead leaves crunch beneath my feet
the sun bleeds in through blankets of cotton candy clouds
retreating for the day
she kisses me goodbye with thousands of freckles upon my shoulders, "Until tomorrow." She then vanishes on the horizon
on a mission to light up the other half of the world
