Beautiful Death


The sunlight shines through
the yellow leaves
leaving everything awash in
golden light

I feel like I am in a painting
seeing the bright splashes of
burnished red
fire red
orange
purple

The air is saturated with magic
leaves
golden flecks
seeds
sparkles

It all floats through the air
playing with the leftover green

The mountains seem to be rusting
as they display their new colors

The rust is beautiful

The death is beautiful

The transition
letting go
dying

I drink it all in
and am filled with hope
