A Rain of Color – v2

A rain of color, the leaves of the maples,
different kinds, red, sugar, swamp,
all torquing, canting, twisting,
inexorably, falling
to the warming, the change
the frost and the sun, conspiring
to create a dance of leaves
meandering, lingering in the still air
not so much a fall as a dance to earth
each a balsa glider,
caught on thermals, on breezes
wet leaves, clear crisp morning
a bright sky, polarized light
a rain of red, yellow, orange,
a remnant of green,
showering down from heaven
