Autumn winds launch leaves
from the color painted trees.
Dry and ready to fall,
they rustle among the branches.
They skitter scatter about
like little critters across the lawn.
They collect in corners
like piles of sleeping puppies.
They rustle to each other
in clusters down the sidewalk,
like crowds of people in the city.
Rustling of leaves
is the conversation
of fall.

Yeah, you're right, Lori, and quite a conversation it is . . .

That's because they use such colorful language. LOL! ~L

I like this, Lori. I wanted you to write "critter catters". My mind weaves in weird word ways.

Leaves are late falling here in my yard ~ But there are enough to get a good crunch or two! Nicely penned as always Lori Lou   Alana
