Fall

November 24, 2008
By Kevin Mertz, Portland, OR

The last orange leaf falls
from the bare tree.
IT floats in the air like a
cloud suspended in the sky.
The last leaf has fallen and it lies
atop of a rose petal,
they are scattered all over the grass.
Men and women in black clothes stand in silence
Mourning over their lost one.
Tears drop from pale faces,
A drop of water falls from the sky like a
Bullet.
It hits hard.
It begins to rain.
