the changing world transformed

a golden snow

the Sun heats the oceans,
and a blanket of carbon dioxide and all
holds in the heat,
the heat which stirs the atmosphere
and pulls rain onto the land,

winds roar and autumn leaves
release into the tempestuous air,
sleeting down, swirling every which way,
as if huge flakes in a golden snow,
which enlarges us, for a while,
into seeing the changing world transformed
with and like the leaves,
and for a few moments,
we transcend.
