still Green

still Green

A Chapter by Dave Brown
"

yes

"

They are still mostly green

But near end of life

When they change color

And leave the tree

To lay round its roots

Giving back sustenance

For Spring’s rebirth

Yes! Exactly!
I read this poem as a transitioning of seasons where something dies to help regenerate something else. Autumn gives way to Spring. Things die and are recycled providing sustenance to nature. This is an inevitable cycle described well here. Thank you.
