The leaves are starting to turn and I was thinking how the changing leaves reflect the friends who come and go in our lives.

 

 
They had been neighbors since spring
on a limb that held a swing.
A bunch of green leaves in a row
aware they would soon have to go.
 
They had gone through much together
through wind and rain and hot weather.
They had welcomed many birds
and listened to their chirpy words.
 
They watched children play below
and saw people come and go.
Some charcoal smoke had sifted through
and washed away by morning dew.
 
“Our summer’s going” one leaf said
as he was turning to bright red.
Another leaf turning yellow
shared many thoughts that were mellow.
 
They weren’t sure what they would face
as they neared the end with such grace.
But as their time came to an end
they produced a breathless blend.
 
Today when our friends move away
all the beauty we’ve shared will stay.
We take with us the fun and jokes
to share with other lovely folks.
