The Tree Down the Street

The tree down the street is

on fire.

Mossy green leaves bleed

out their lives,

transformed.

The brown branches ignite

in pumpkin orange,

vampire red,

ghoulish yellow.

The flames creep up the trunk

and swallow the skyline

until the wind gusts

by and steals the flames,

scatters

them around the block.

All the trees are on

fire

now.
