Two Leaves of Autumn

North Leaf
autumn blows, bright and dry, colored
leaves tossing life out, fortified bursts
like silver hair, doubling down

new color, latest show, more knowledge
much lost, winds of time twelve-monthly
erode period’s truth of presence

South Leaf
autumn bathes, brown and wet, soaked
carotins’ proneness to tropic moisture
labored gasps, hampered / atmospheric pressure

nonetheless notice, hues yellow and orange
teasing suggestions: warmth fairer than August
only when preparations undertaken in earnest
