Three Worlds One Vision

Carpet of Fallen Autumn Leaves

Autumn has arrived in the northern hemisphere. Deciduous trees transform from hues of green leaves to blazes of yellow, orange, red, and brown. Fallen leaves carpet the earth with gold.

While the vibrant colors brighten my day, the shorter daylight hours and longer nights dampen my spirits. The fallen leaves remind me of all that I have had to let go of along my journey through life. Each leaf: a person who, for good or for bad, has touched my life.

    The tree blushed – a rude blast of air
    betrayed a shapely bough.
    My saddened heart aware

    I froze upon the twelfth
    Clanging tone, caught alone,
    Staring at a creaking door –
    Left ajar for dancing, colored Autumn,
    Pirouetting in her leaves,
    While agitated summer creatures
    Backed away resignedly,
    Sighing in protracted breves.
    I turned; gave company;
    We stood together, watching
    Summer slowly blow away.

      Thanks for lifting my spirits.
