Please please please please give me feedback. This poem was the result of many days of me doing nothing but daydreaming, and noticing all the changes that are happening around me. I'm attempting to highlight all my views in this poem.

When Leaves Flush

The screen on my window blurs my view, but I see
the leaves went from a fresh green to gold and vermillion. 
The air chills to make us put colorful wool over our heads,
so there’s no green apple of the red, 
and we’re a mass of emotions and flesh. 
I wonder why all my friends like blue? 

Only when I lay still, and examine the clouds,
I realize that clouds move. 
Clouds are like herds of elephants, 
traveling with their families from place to place, 
and no one needs a home as long as they’re with each other. 
I’ve never seen the same cloud formation in one place. 

My crimson rose garden evanesces, 
and my tomatoes and squashes pass away.
Life flows out of my garden like an endless flux, 
but the seeds I traded for a cow, 
metamorphose into a beanstalk reaching the sky, 
and I grieve my sacrifice for the cow. 
This is the beginning of a poem I'm planning to submit to Scholastic.

    This is incredible!! I don't rlly like doing reviews for poetry cuz there's not much critique that I give, but I do really like the lines "Life flows out of my garden like an endless flux,
    but the seeds I traded for a cow, " Beautiful <33
