Autumn Teases

A drone picture of a man raking autumn leaves under a maple tree in Brandenburg, Germany

drift to earth

in a speckled carpet

 

The gardener is belittled

by the beauty designed

His trivial attempt to regain control

thwarted by the continual

fall of leaves around him

 

He may rake,

attempt to edict

his mandate

and autumn will counter it,

leaf by leaf
