nature divided

The tree stands
undecided,
fresh green leaves
gracing the base
while a deep red
stretches,
throwing autumn hues
onto a powder blue
canvas.
We have only days
until our tree
surrenders to the fall
and dons a burgundy robe
before standing bare,
exposed to the elements,
biding its time
until spring returns
to warm its branches.
