some trees

some trees
have let go their leaves

while others
seem to keep them longer
in their autumn glory

the willows though
still weep mostly green tears

* * *

ferns gone
for the year
hard to believe
how they will grow
new plants
unfurl again
in spring

  1. I noticed the willows as I traveled. They’re beautiful, and such a contrast to the vibrant colors. Another new tree to me was the honey locust. It’s as delicate as the willow, although its yellows already were appearing.

  2. I love the image of willows weeping green tears. It is always fascinating when the ferns uncurl again in the spring, mine have not completely died away yet.
