October's Elegy

A poem by Gavin -- This is a poem I wrote in about 24 hours (including breaks and sleeping). I was just so inspired by the way the leaves smelled.

Autumn leaves
smell like fresh green--
severed from thin branches
and fallen, to dry, in the
cold sun.

Autumn leaves
look like artists' canvasses--
once green, splashed with
bright red sunlight
and sharp cold air.

Autumn leaves
feel like thin hands--
with once-alive veins
now empty, and soft velvet
like dead fingers.

Autumn leaves
sound like whispering voices--
telling unknown secrets
of Fall's dying, and thinking mutely
of the peaceful end to come.
