Fall

Fall

Fall

 

Like brown soldiers
in tattered uniforms,
they keep watch until 
succumbing to the wind –
relinquishing their grip
on the branches of life,
plummeting to their death,
to decompose against the earth
beneath the coming snows. 
We all live, we all fall.
We all become
the earth
once more.
