Harvest

The harvest moon shines –
Golden spotlight revealing
Fall’s color palette
And spectrum of emotion
At once illuminated

Homeward Bound

Leaves crunch underfoot
Colors adorn the path home
Autumn air chills

Seasons

Seasons come and go
Downpours of rain, then ice and snow
Sunshiney days and a cool evening breeze
Budding flowers and leaves falling from trees
Time passes on while nature puts on a show

Repose

Sunshine hides, clouds reign –
Leaves and branches bow under
Fall rain’s tranquil mood
