Fall Break Down

Fall is a time to wind down

Relax to the sound of bonfires

Wooden logs crackling, flames dancing

Breathe in the smell of pine cones

Listen for the familiar crunch underfoot

Feet drudge through leaves of every shade

A vision of red, orange and yellow

Scattered along the ground

Trees shake off a year’s worth of stress

Ready to expose bones before winter’s call

So do we.
