Flowers in bloom

wilt to nothing

as leaves decay

and bitter winds

blow death away.


Autumn chills

burn the lungs

with frosty air

and rosy cheeks

are not prepared.


Seasons change

but we remain

left to weather

the pelting rain.

Storms blow through,

leaving only ruin

with pieces left

that broke too soon.
