Autumn

Poetry Prompt:

Here’s your challenge (if you chose to accept it): Write a poem influenced by your feelings about autumn. Do you see autumn as a beginning or the beginning of the end?  Chose at least three from this list of words below.

The words:
chill
                              renewal
                              death
                              rebirth
                              harvest
                              melancholy
                              aging
                              change

As autumn leaves begin to turn, each
Unlike any other, with brilliant reds
Tarnished oranges and golden yellows
Undulating they start to fall, leaving us
Melancholy, for winter and death are very
Near, but rejoice for rebirth will come with spring
