Careless Beauty


She is careless with her jewels.

They sparkle in colors of rubies and gold.

In the weakening sunlight her finery cannot be surpassed.

Her beauty is glorious

But it is shortlived and soon starts to fade

The wind snatches her good looks away

Slowly at first

But then in a rush

Until all that is left are her empty and lifeless branches.

She will lie dormant until life rises back through her veins,

When Spring returns.
