magical this snow globe world

let down clinging leaves slowly
a raw afternoon
beauty filling the still air
coloring the ground below

lights glimmering still
dusk and twilight lingers on
across the green fields
cascade of leaves pasting me
as a gentle breeze floats by

bright autumn foliage
reflections – perfect beauty
golden glory shines
joys of summer days have gone
shadows lengthen days shorter

pale autumn leaves fall
while walking under the lamp
rustle of dry leaves
robin in full chorus
reminds me of pleasant days

early morning fog
sheep warming in the dull sun
late lush summer grass
wishing for the days gone by
with thoughts of birds in chorus

departed limp leaves
laying on the front porch deck
kitty approaching
looks a little full today
been chasing birds all day long

steps cleaned before slipping down
need to do some work
sitting dreaming by the fire
bowl of pea soup beside me

dried up leaves and nuts
browns and golden hues
garden untidy
maybe a student could help
create a garden of peace
