Autumn's Chilling Blaze

Autumn's Chilling Blaze

The trees blaze as if on fire

the Autumn breeze plays the leaves

A song of times passing lightly falls

on ears & eyes & mind & soul.

Lazy days of Summer's past

the chilling fire of Autumn's blast

The air turned crisp & cool flows

over the land, spreading color to gently swaying branches.


A small boy shuffles through the color

the sound of laughter echoes down the lane


Times like these ease the pain &

the loneliness makes room for awe.

A landscape transformed as if touched

by a painter with a thousand brushes.


At night the moon shines


Bright, Big and Real


The wind rolls clouds

over his face


A chill is felt by body and soul

A season's past…

A small boy laughs…


A man cries…


A dream is done.

……….
