The gentle pass of Colorado.

Her warm delicate breeze

sends whispered kisses

through the majestic trees

of vivid red, gold, and green


Inspiring the souls peaceful dream,

Bountiful, Sacred, and Clean.

Cascading crystal streams,

flow from the virgin white snow

capped mountains,

swelling the sacred pool,

to the lover's fountain.

From a majestic height,

the red hued sun yields to warm night,

and silken bright white stars sing,

by the firelight's glow,

Her smooth angelic face,

reflects the warm grace,

that overflows,

in the midst of humanities sacred place.

Welcome to the wonderland

of serene paradise,

where life freely flows,


The gentle pass of Colorado....

Autumn poem. As if I were there. I love this time of year, thanks for capturing it in a poem.
