When fall winds dry and tear green grasses,
drying blades appear as mortals.
Though summers vivify green masses,
fall winds tear and dry the grasses
very thin and verdant grass is
yellowed. Rounding seasonal circles,
the fall winds dry and tear green grasses,
but spring reveals them as immortals.
Poem by Ralph La Rosa
Ralph La Rosa’s poetry appears widely on the Internet, in print journals, and in the chapbook Sonnet Stanzas and the full-length collections Ghost Trees and My Miscellaneous Muse.
