Crerscendo of Fall

an orchestra of color a symphony of Fall
the brilliance of russet leaves on the mighty oak tall
the sun, gentle winds embrace each leaf alight
sweeping grace of russet held by each leaf in flight
feel I the dance of branch and bough in surrender's call
leaves in repose, the finale, the crescendo of Fall.

  1. ROSEMARIE - your image and words are breath taking. I feel the force of the seasons change - the brilliance and the intense surrender - as the Autumn day gives way to an early night and the trees become barren, the skies darken like a war sky - and the world quiets to give in to Winters purpose - a time of reflection and waiting for the new.
    Love to you

  2. Gail, I so appreciate your inspiring words. I envision our creating a presentation of shared delight.

    Much much love,
    Rose Marie
