Poetry: “Green leaves”

Written during another sweltering hot day, watching nature slowly wither outside from lack of rain.

***~***~***~***

Green leaves

There is no more
Leaves of green
The sun above
Has burned them all
To autumns hues
Of withered brown
To save what moisture
They can find
The heat above
It has no end
To wearied nature
All around
The skies have failed
To bring the rain
Which they all need
To persevere
I stand here then
In fields of brown
And see no more
Leaves of green
