Autumn's Grand Day

Click thumbnail to view full-size

Listen to the rustling of the trees

Watch the painting of the forest

Feel the breeze against your face

It's Autumn speaking her peace

calming your mood

Autumn showed her grandness in

the rain moving swiftly like clouds

on the water

I saw autumn in the turtle shell

floating on the river

Autumn show her grandness in the

knots of the cypress noel on the ground

like a great fortress beside the water

Autumn show her grandness in the

white oak leaves cascading to the ground

tree so grand yet the leaf and bark so soft

that make a carpet for your feet

Autumn showed her grandness in a branch

floating across the water not knowing

where it might find itself

Autumn's colors so bright you can't

miss her so bold you want to know her

Than she hides into the winter days

leaving you breathless and longing

for more.

Some things we see and appreciate and keep it in our minds. But poets see and appreciate and share it with the world. Thank you.
