How Like the Autumn

How like the autumn is my life.
Throughout the hot sultry days of summer, the trees worked tireless providing shade, offering shelter, converting carbon dioxide into oxygen.
Now refreshing cool breezes kiss the trees and they relax. They trade their green uniforms for garments of scarlet, gold, burgundy, and orange. Perhaps they feel more comfortable wearing their true colors.
One by one, the leaves relax, retire, and flutter away like snowflakes in a swirl of delight. The air feels less oppressive, the sunlight feels less harsh.
The time, though shorter and fleeting, feels gentler.
How like the autumn is my life.
