On Seeing the Light's Reflection on Autumn Leaves

Updated on March 7, 2013

Crisp autumn day in the mountains

A time to reflect as I stroll

Along the weather-beaten foot bridge

I stop to gaze at the water below

Not much water to see

Just leaves; beautiful leaves

In the shapes and colors of fall

Reds, yellows, browns, and oranges

Reflecting rays of golden sunlight

Creating a most perfect path

Calling to all who gaze upon her outstretched arms

Inviting them to find comfort in nature's cradle of peace

Oh how I want to curl up in this radiant light!

To be warmed by the glowing orb that sits against blue sky

And take refuge like the leaves that have captured my gaze.

There is a bit of leaf in all of us, I suppose.

A part that will always be warmed by the light.

The thought emerges, passes, and I walk on

As another leaf falls.

      You've painted a beautiful picture of Autumn with your words. Noticing the leaves and the light that shine upon them is very inspirational. Beautiful work. Voted up
