early autumn sun
shining through the distant mist
throwing dark shadows
in harmony with the air
wishing I was in dreamland again

flicking in front of his eyes
crackling with delight
memories of autumn days

drying up in late summer
floating around me
moved by the gentle breeze

fall foliage rustling gently
beneath my cool feet
in harmony with my thoughts
with soft whispers rustling by

falling leaves hide the wide path
spread like a carpet
a time for maturity
harvesting the fruits of life
