First Snow

such a lovely surprise to wake
the first snow

to slip on boots
head out to be part of the snow clad morning

it is all melted now
I am left with a reminder to get autumn chores completed
before winter arrives



Autumn Forest

autumn colors beckon
wander and see

though the edges are divine
they call:
step into me

step over logs and bush
duck under arms of trees

the cool crisp refined air

eventually returning
to the edges

it has been a gorgeous autumn
the colors
the mix of weather
the big fat moon in a starry sky

colors are changing fast
some beyond their height of bright color

leaves dance through the air
blanketing the earth 
floating on water
a time that inspires ones senses to come to life

lovely days and nights to you
