Briefly

Stages and ages of crimson edges
crisp rounds, centers of golden.

Veins will remain long after the delicate
sections have disassembled themselves
to join the soil for another cycle.

These elders don't fight seasonal changes.
Through the quiet and loud
or bend and wave of storm
they receive while sheltering seedings below

forever willing to show their nakeness
in the darkest of times.
With empty arms
while full of life within.

Their offerings a mosaic
of temorary color.
