BARE BRANCHES

bare branches
a painting against the blue sky
leaves under my feet

from branches that touch the sky
the happy sparrows take flight

with the rising sun
the air holds promise of snow –
frost a white coating

a new flock of sparrows arises
settling on the tall branches

happy sparrows sing
becoming part of the trees
breaking the silence

autumn leaves come crashing down
awakening to birdsongs
