She Sheds Her Clothes Again

Green leaves begin their dying now
a few last bursts of summer's fling
before the chill nights ring the bell
and usher in the fall.

This night, the moon will rise 
a full and a luscious orange globe
above the tree tops you can see her
ablaze like Aztec gold.
The Hunter's Moon, they call her
at the Autumn's Equinox
heralding earth's proclivity
to shed her clothes.

The leaves will grow heavy
when the rains come
and they will come hard they say this year
and merciless for awhile until
the Sun decides to shine again and bring
the great north winds along to whistle.

Together they will spin their palette
splashing magic colors twirling
floating feathered leaves to cover
grass and moss and once again
the earth renews.
