In our writing we draw inspiration and ideas from nature, people we meet and events in our lives.
Autumn is now entering and as it advances our surroundings are painted in new and glorious hues. Somewhat rudely Autumn also disrobes so many of our trees that for months have been laden with green in so many stunning shades. A total transformation takes place on a daily basis. A show by mother nature to us.
On that note I want to share a poem with you.
Like happy feathers they danced
The autumn leaves.
gold, brown and red.
Such a happy dance, it seemed;
As if death was not sad at all.
Can’t say I am advanced enough,
to meet death with the beauty,
Of the leaves.
Lacking their peaceful surety
This morning the trees have given,
a lesson so serene.
Maybe one day I will see death
With the ease and the light of the leaf.
