The Beauty of Autumn


The beauty of autumn brings encouragement,

lifting our spirits in a softer sun,

as a sense of peace envelops us

within the flowers.

As the Summer Fades


As the summer fades our hope is not diminished,

having been lifted, by the cooler air,

and the hint of a softer sun

still bringing life filtered,

through the trees.

Her Future Glory


It was a small flame, on a single tree leaning,

as if she’d been hiding,

high in the mountains

on a cool crisp morning,

revealing only a part

of her future glory.

I smiled remembering

her fire of yellow, gold, and red,

so I breathed in,

accepted the embrace

of the brillant fire

of autumn.
