November 11, 2015 Writers Digest November PAD Challenge/Fall in Taos

Fall in Taos

tarantella marches lockstep to the gorge     happens every fall      they are on the road

in the sage brush                         returning home                        the trees partially bare

still golden leaves fall                 like a ticker tape parade          liter glitter in the air

scattered on the ground               like gold coins                        the wind moves them

they settle in a heap at the curb        have you ever met a wolverine by the road

in the time between dusk and dawn     huffing and puffing         face all red

snarling and spitting                  looking for a fight                      mad as a wet hen

you never know about him        his moods change as quickly as         texas weather

it is best to simply keep walking                             blue sky sharp as a blade

butterfly descends                      gentle as a kiss                 seeking the season's last flower
