Coaxing

Visually she coaxes the tree

Scarlet apex promising splendor

Hesitant to complete transformation

Deep green body resists surrender.

With gentle and persistent message

Daily her eyes speak to each leaf

Cajole to relinquish defiance

Give selves over to crimson cascade.

Each glance an urgent summons

Issued multiple times per day

Acquiese to October’s mandate

Release inner cerise and garnet

Allow timid rubies light to play.
