Autumn is Captivating

Updated on October 31, 2014

The shimmering hues of Autumn, Oh, what priceless pleasures to behold, Open wide your eyes and see, Fleeting is this season's ebullient array,

Green, yellow, gold, orange, red, brown, Hues I just don't recall seeing before, Here in this season there is artistic splendor, Witness with your own eyes,

Look at Autumn! Showing off and producing marvel, All of the Creator's majestic works, Creative strokes of brilliance everywhere, Up in the mountains, and all around,

I was merely walking along my way, The trees seem to shout, Behold the glories of our Creator! Fascinated at what my eyes were beholding, Orchestrated magnificence which I could not deny,

All under a stellar sun lit sky, Oh my, what excellence and goodness! As I journeyed, walking towards my destination, It appeared the terrestrial prompted questions within me,

I could hear and see praise of God in every leaf, Most have fallen and some still attached to branches, Yet ever ready to fall, but not without final words,

Isn't our Creator great the colors whispered? Ah, I replied, Yes indeed! and He is greatly to be praised, I reached to pick up a fallen leaf, When springs of thanks and praises were unleashed within me,

Why don't you add to our ascribed beauty, and glory? They seemed to resonate, and resound, Express what is impressed within you, By all of these grandiose displays, Inviting me to join in the crescendo of praises,

The different colors represent praises offered, Before they drop and are no more, My soul shouted, Yes within me, your hues have convinced me, I will give Him thanks, and appreciation!

Praises will continually live in and through me, Out of me will pour prose, poetry, and song, Any means I can use to articulate His wonder, I will tell the Most High that I value Him, and that He is my core value and that I am delighted!

I deem Him worthy of thanksgiving and adoration, For all the works of His mighty hands, I shall also give Him praises as well, For creating such delight in me for nature, and filling my heart with such joy,

I will tell all creatures wherever I go, and all who will listen, The Creator is Savior and He satisfies in all things which He has created.

      Those pictures are the strokes of the Lord on the nature showing how he loves diversity on the different colors ..just as how much he loves his creation and all that's got to do with beauty. Beautiful.

      "Showing off and producing marvel." That's what I think of autumn thought I've never said it quite like that. I lived in Michigan for awhile and greatly enjoyed the colors. I will miss them this year. Thanks for the reminder.

      Hi "bigj1969" thank you for your kind words and for dropping by. Autumn is truly special just as the leaves which fall from the trees, so were we fallen until Jesus picked us up and we now have purpose. Have a wonderful week.

      You put autumn is words that resonated with me. I love fall and it's my favorite season. There is something so thrilling and yet, towards its end, so mournful - bittersweet.

      Nice work.

      Yes, we all know what it is like to fall just as the leaves, but praise God we know the power of resurrection from the dead through Christ Jesus. We are all His beautiful leaves He picks up and gives purpose. The leaves I mentioned in this prose. I brought home and placed them on my table. Thank you for dropping by and chatting with me. Have a wonderful weekend.

      As in our own demise, the trees of Autumn's beautiful leaves remind us all that when we pass, also,

      for our lord, we are his beautiful leaves to harvest. Thank you for sharing this lovely work. whonu
