Autumn in October




russet leaves peek
at old wooden barn
seams bursting with
harvest of corn and wheat,
summer's hay stacked high

long slender arms twirl
the cool winds whispering     
coppery meadow, until  
dust brown leaves sleep,
falling into arms of mother earth

  1. "falling into arms of mother earth" is so wonderful, and "coppery meadow" is so beautifully descriptive.
    (Just thought I should mention, though, you might mean "peek" rather than "peak" in the first line?)
