Like hands aflutter, as they fall,
The leaves leave color over all.
As people pause,
They stare, because
The falling leaves hear Maker’s call.
Like candy corn in festive hues,
Their colors lift us from our blues.
We love the sight
In muted light,
Of fragile tumbling corkscrews.
As branches fold their arms to pray,
We stop and marvel each fall day.
The maples pose
And shed their clothes,
To wait for next year’s new array.
The portly oaks release their best,
Which fall and scatter with the rest.
Still, proud they stand,
Survey the land,
And know their faith has stood the test.
For death need not be source of dread,
Nor scary story left unsaid.
A fresher start
Awaits the heart
That welcomes roads unknown ahead.
