|Walking into delight|
How can I put into words the beauty of this day? The trees caught fire? The leaves shone like sunlight through stained glass? It sounds so pale in comparison to the experience I had of walking amid the trees today.
|Rose and evergreen above my head|
|Back lit leaves at my feet|
|Tawny leather leaves of the grand Oaks|
To walk beneath them, to peer into their canopies...to peer through their canopies! To feel small beneath their beauty...it took my breath away.
|Amber plays with green|
To try and put it the experience into words would be to do it an injustice, at least at this point. It did inspire verse that I hope will give birth to a poem. With all of that said, here is a snapshot of the siren song that wooed me into the company of the trees.
|The view above is amazing!|
|Then a curious squirrel in the branches|
|Bright sentinels between park and field|
|Geese have arrived to forage|
|Long shadows stretch across the lawn|
|Fall rain pools, an invite to waterfowl and wildlife|
|My breath is taken away|
|I want to stay here forever|
|The trees share their color with the sod|
|I am happy to be deep in them|
|And sad that it is time to go back home|
|One last sweetness to remember this day|
How wondrous this creation we live in, the delights are countless...if we will just take the time to look.
