Holocaust

It started with a chorus of yellow leaves
           taking jaunty flipping courses down wispy streams of air
   after awhile they started to hiss in the warmer clime
                        I walked on in a type of wonder
a changed golden world
         suddenly a flurry of fury in a soprano wind 
they slammed against my eyes, arms, mouth
                                                    body, hands and legs
      in a vicious coil they wrapped me in a tower forcing me to stop.
Now they lay on the ground scattered in a
         chaos
                 that I cannot place in order
     like dead bodies
               waiting to be buried.
  They seem sad there.
              Not at all like when they were green.
 Melt under my feet
               you earthen wonders.
                       Make way for winter’s coat.
