Fall Foliage Feelings
Some poetic thoughts inspired by late fall in Texas …
FALL FOLIAGE FEELINGS
The trees have gotten a little more bare;
A few more leaves just fell.
The weather, poised on a knife’s edge of impending change
High winds rise, fall, rise again and change direction,
While clouds mass, then dissipate,
And skies darken hither and yon.
A clear, bright sun hits a cobalt blue canvas,
Framing the fall-tinged red oaks’ leaf-dying beauty.
Poignancy, introspection and bits of melancholy
Are the hoped-for fruits of a leaf-dying soul —
Autumnal moods for autumnal days
In a sometimes sadness-gilded autumnal life.
