The Clouds of Autumn Sunshine

Clouds in the air bring the sweet caress of cool Autumn leaves,
Spiders and Butterflies set themselves down to rest in the eternal,
It takes thirty seconds to give a gentle word, or respond in gratitude,
It takes thirty seconds to give a helping hand to a struggling soul,
There is no cost to kindness, and yet kindness alludes us,
But the forgiveness of death and rebirth calls out to another way,
Where we transform the darkness into Autumn Sunshine,
As the clouds caress, I know that one day, the Lord will bring Autumn Sunshine,
And in that moment, Kindness shall reign.

    Beautiful write here, Woodrow. Been awhile since you've posted here at the Soup. Hope all is well. I'm collecting birthdates so I can send a Happy Birthday blog to folks ... when is yours?

    Well, this is just wonderful, Woodrow and I'm curious as to why you put "Sad" as what its about instead of "Nature" or "Faith" ??? I enjoy your writing very much.
