Sepia Spring

Dry twigs on green trees, blown away by gentle breeze,
Fragrance spread their wings, humming tiny citrine bees,
Auburn, Umber, Ochre leaves, dresses without sleeves,
Ripe are purple bunch creepers, tempted blind thieves.

Neglected delicious crumbs, marching dots with drums,
Buff droplets of honey, calcium breaks earthling comes,
In veins of mother life flows, from deep slumber she rose,
Harshness to freshness, new pollens grasp sensitive nose.

Surge of revival all around, Wenge memories go down,
Many reason to flash smiles, king of all without a crown,
Such is the affect of sepia spring, taupe ravens also sing,
Tunes of the rusty shades, makes me want to swing.

I like the squareness of this.  The words are not bad.  But it needs heart.  The words are flourishing in an oxygenless tank.
