Autumn wafts upon me, each leaf lands
in saffron, scarlet and burnished tides
as I’m falling for each bough. Views expanding,
my eyes converse while my heart confides
to my soul, how this is my favorite season.
The wind blows corn, rustling and golden-
a harvest awaiting rhyme and reason
willed by our God from ancient days olden.
And the country calls with a chilly flair
of copper sunsets kindling. Distant skies
on fields of horizons make me aware
of a driven gravel road. A crow cries-
a longing that reflects love of nature more,
a drumming kind of knock upon winter’s door.
