Autumn Artistry

Oct. 16, 2011

Creator, Artist, You have brushed the day
with sunlight morning, noon and evening long,
making the greens more vibrant and the play
of yellow, drying leaves more like a song.
The shadows fall just slightly to the north
of every bush and tree and body too,
and the crisp breeze refreshes the still-warm earth
and its remains in me – an image of You.
The last hurrah of color tinges red
and orange before the white and brown are left –
before these living things seem all but dead
and even the sky of color is bereft.
You paint a gorgeous canvas, zenith to ground.
Your work in autumn has beauty to astound.
