Will I Also Return

I was young as spring,
and held to an autumn's wind
like pomegranates
hung from the highest branches
before black crows hollowed them
autumn flurries came
with the scent of fallen fruit,
piles of dying leaves,  
dark brothers crushed underfoot
to be shelter for next spring  

This is a Rensaku of linked Tanka.
