The Autumn Dance

Copper leaves
illuminated by the
glow of a Brooklyn
street lamp
cast
incandescent figures
on the pavement
below
They Dance
swaying to and fro
as cars
and people
and self-absorption
whiz by
missing the final act
ignoring the last bow
forgetting the entire show–

  1. Loveliness and sadness intermingled as only you can do it! Ohh, all the people preoccupied with their race to whatever concern who never take time to see or hear the dancing, whispering leaves!
    What a pity.

    Hugs, Ron
