Ruby Red

Against blowing wind
Ruby Red’s blaze
Hurting my eyes
     can’t look away

Crumble to earth
Crunching under my feet
Bits to nothing now
     once beautiful

Golden Orange, Battered Brown
Falling together now with the Rubies
Once green and thriving
     now rest withered

Explosion of death
Amazing mix of decay
Splendor spilled, ruined
     hope cold

Soil of earth needy
Winter malnourished
Ruby Red’s destruction
     makes Spring grow
