Autumn LeavesGolden leaves before they fall
How much of spring do they recall?
Do they remember the green they wore
In a verdant world never seen before?
All summer long in a dress of green
Dancing, laughing so keen.
To feel the wind and rain’s caress
while wearing their best green dress.
Facing each day never knowing summer would end
and their life was short and that of their friend.
They watched their leaf mates fall to the ground
In slow motion turning around and around.
Until only one golden leaf on the tree still hung
remembering yesterday, when it was young.
It could stand against the strongest wind
taking the worst that nature could send.
Growing weaker and weaker every day
until it had to let go and was blown astray.
Lying on the ground in a pile of dead friends
It knew when strength was gone that life ends.
When it struggled its final breath to take
The last thing it heard was the sound of a rake.

A sad song he may play on lonely and empty trails,
But never shed a tear as your soul shall certainly ail.
Beware the night musician is all you must know,
Or you could end up in his next mystical show.

As he dies in the lime light
His life is exiting stage right
He weeps as he bleeds out
as he experiences the blackout
he will never need to feel again
Now that he has lost his domain
SistersLeaving the comm station Beatrice slowly walked over to her younger sister Gwen in the pilots sleep bay. Pulling off her hood she fought back the tears, carefully forming the words in her mind and working through the colossal task that their journey had now become.
"They're not coming" her voice breaking, "they never made it to launch before the quake hit, there wasn't enough time."
"But they have the backup shuttle they can still transfer everyone and get here in time!" Gwen cried out in a rush of shocked disbelief.
"NO! The backup is gone too IT'S ALL GONE! Everything, the whole facility is in rubble! That message came from air reconnaissance!" Beatrice shouted, desperately trying to control her emotions.
"What are we going to do the voyage is 51 years we need those other pilots! We can't go we can't... 51 years Bea we'll never make it!" Gwen's words trailing off as she sobbed heavily, "260,000 people in cryo, millions of fauna and flora in the genetic banks all for nothing, for noth
