A Delicate Rustle…

Wind’s loving caress.
Aspen gold sifts breeze to song,
Whispered lullaby…

Perpetual Autumn…

Autumn brilliance,

Permanently draped

Upon transitory stone.

Patterned perfection.

Auburn kissed,

And crimson-gold.

No leaves to fret,

Shifting grounds.

No rustling heard in the wind.

Making bare, expectations.

Majestic fall defiance.

Autumn arrayed for all seasons.

Paint The Season…

Lady of autumn
Gift forest bare with warm hues
Bathe the ground in gold

Transitional Demise…

You’ve embraced life’s change
Beauty remains as you fade
Soft on the water

Golden Change…

Image

 

The golden gateway,

To autumn’s seasonal change.

Guided by God’s light.

 

Personal photography.

I see God…

In a sunset, fiery red and orange,

Or the perfection of a child newly born.

In the colorful array of a peacocks’ plumes,

Or the simplistic beauty of wild daisies in bloom.

In the delicate dance of the butterfly,

Or the majestic eagle ascending a deep cobalt sky.

I see God…

 

In the laughter-induced smiles of children at play,

Or the fresh smell of newly fallen rain.

In a rose’s velvet touch and perfumed scent,

Or the compassion and kindness of a loving friend.

In the cool flowing waters that tail winters’ frost,

Or the gift of hope when once all was lost.

I see God…

 

In the autumn leaves blanketing the hillsides,

Or the tearful hellos after long good-byes.

In the serendipitous moment of epiphany,

Or loves’ role in the quickening heartbeat.

In the cool breeze upon a contemplative face,

Or the expansive glory of outer space.

I see God…

 

In a rainbow’s appearance after a storm,

Or strength gained from trials overcome.

In the melodic hymns sung by the birds,

Or the gathering together of gifted words.

In the mountain silhouettes accompanying dawn or setting sun,

Or the flowering cactus among the dry beige and barren.

I see God…

 

I could fill endless pages with the beauty that is He,

Amidst antagonistic scribed evidence of dark negativity.

Pain and fear are played like anthems in this world,

The lines of good and evil get blurred.

Accepting the blindfolds offered by darkness,

Keeps us from the amazing; joy and renewal are missed.

If we seek, on purpose, the inspiring wonder,

Evidence of God’s goodness will be discovered.

Aside

Autumns Array…

The colors of autumn
Specifically ascribed
To each unique gourd
Born from earth into light

Exploding with subtlety
Beautiful by design
Limited to minimal hues
Yet, magnificent and sublime

They emerge with such intensity
Contrasted with soil, brown and moist
Providing a feast for the eyes
And to the ground, a voice

Singing seasonal melodies
To a world before its impending freeze
Arrayed in abstract artistic perfection
Whispering happiness upon the breeze
