Autumnal Fantasy

a breeze lifted from the river
carrying the smoke of autumn
thin gilded leaves shiver and dance
with a tenuous grasp
on thin black branches
the sibilant voice of leaf on leaf
butterflies dressed in their finest
for the last formal celebration
of a fading summer
a fantasia of
color
sound
aromas
movement
one last burst of glory
before the arrival
of winter's frigid gaze.
