like fabulous yellow roman candles

>there is a tree,
outside my window.
this time of year i find myself,
stopping, to watch it.
when the setting sun
hits it just right –
it lights up,
like fabulous yellow
roman candles exploding

and i do go “Awww!”
even if it is inaudible.
each day, my tree
is losing her leaves.
soon she will be bare,
bracing herself for the winter.

i am not so prepared.
