FIRESHOWER

 

tree with golden-brown fall leaves

 

Petals of fire

flow
in an archipelago
of Gold-rust motes
of Sun.

Leaves of a Star
changing, consuming
the air and ground

though not the wood and bole. tree with golden-brown fall leaves

The tree holds
fire-red gold
at limb’s length,

like torches held up
for light
waving briskly in the air tree with golden-brown fall leaves

before burning out
and in a soft-dry “whick”
loosing and

plunging

to a green’s grave —
cascading alchemy
from
gold to humus.

fall leaves on the ground
