Another Beautiful Season

20181115_103657

Don’t be dismayed if you see a few snowflakes

mixed into the fall colors,

it just means another beautiful season

is right behind this one.

Ain’t that amazing?

Her Future Glory

20171126_134613

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.

Quiet Mist

100_1184

I like to watch the mist roll in, covering the mountains, and rain

wrapping around a cool fall day, tapping gently on our roof

it all reminds me somehow that water brings life

unhindered, and that quiet times

can wash us, taking away

our noise.

As the Waterfalls Freeze

100_0709

As the waterfalls freeze in the mountains there is no sorrow,

no lamenting over what we once had, only the waiting

for a new sun, as our attention turns indoors,

to apple pies with ice cream, and

the holidays with family,

slowly rising

on the horizon.
