A pageant of seasonal beauty,
unfurls amidst breath taking tree tops.
Teal leaves morph into umber and gold,
utilizing a painters pallet.
Muse to the most prestigious artists,
nature has inspired masterpieces.
Color plays out like a rhapsody,
of subtle notes in a melody.
Lacquered patches of green leaves gather
onto branches of pines and cedar,
rendering colorful mosaics, as
scarlet and tangerine commingle.
A celebration of bright pigments,
reveling before the landscape is
effectively stripped of its cover.
Apricot and orange interlace,
magnifying in intensity.
And groves of birchbark trees resemble
zebras or skeletons exposed as
iridescent canopies ripple.
Nothing short of spring can rival the
glorious spectacle of autumn.
( A first letter acrostic poem spelling “Autumn Colors Are Amazing” )
