October Journey

October Journey

is a wind of festivity, maple
leaves clinging
desperately
during Autumnís ritual

countless curlicues
descending as
a flotilla
of curled-up edges.

Orange, reddish-hue
and yellow tinges tumble
from lofty spires
to historic journeys
below, a

leafy dance, in one last
trembling fling.
