Foot prints in leaves

Trees toss  feathers in apple dapple hues,

leafy crumbs line sidewalks

as Fall mellows and jells into thoughts of gummie bears …

a neighbor child cups her hands over a cooling window

and a late summer pie trembles on the sill

while she peers past lunch boxes set on the kitchen table 

to ghosts of Christmas past…

where children bounce on feather beds

and feathers bounce off laughter

and marshmallows swirl in chocolate blizzards of Halloween costumes and Thanksgiving parades…

fall and swirl around like goose feathers 

bursting out of pillows…she knocks upon the window 

before she skips away

her footprints swirling ‘midst leaves
