from my window

from my window,
the beauty of across the street maples
makes noise in my eyes and when i blink
i see yellows and reds on a green backdrop
and i wonder if the leaves don’t have to,
so i can enjoy their rhapsody when the wind blows.
Yes, I’m a sucker for Nature’s Bounty and Yes,
I’m beguiled to do anything else,
but to wait to watch seasons
change to white.
