Autumn Blaze

First frost,green is lost, Autumn winds clear the sky and the morning sun sets fall maple trees ablaze.

Illuminated maple leaves resemble the tired veins of an old man’s hand who is ready for a long rest.

Wet leaves dampen the sound of steps a proud ambitious buck, taking busy squirrels by surprise.

Hardy Cardinals invisible in the fluttering crimson leaves, shake off the morning chill and begin scouting a shelter for the coming winter.

Fall, one of my favorite times of year.

Peace.

    1. Gina thank you so much for your thoughtful comment. The maples work so hard all summer replenishing earths oxygen and shade. They deserve a well earned slumber. Peace to you:)

      1. maple leaves fascinate me. coming from Asia i never saw leaves change colour that way till I lived in North America for a spell. creation has an amazing cycle so predictable and clinical in some ways yet so magical too.
