My Year with No People

A year with no people. I expected it to kill me

Looking out the window
Winter storm coming
Bare branches swaying
driven by a shuddering north wind
Dead leaves swirling in spirals
Alive for just a minute,
then nothing
as the leaves tumble
to the ground
No color but grays
and muddled black
Spring far away
Just frigid cold,
angry ice,
and the bleak colors
of loneliness
