Autumn Morning

walking to
school
on a monday
morning at
eight
backpack on and lunch
in
hand
wind
blowing blowing blowing
cold
air
me
alone
walking walking walking
one step two step three step
then
running running running
hands
outstretched
reaching
up to the
sky
leaves
falling falling falling
red orange yellow
grabbing grabbing grabbing
failing failing failing
then
finally one
caught
beautiful yellow-orange
streaks of red
wishing wishing wishing
let it go into the
wind
running running running
