Fall N’ Falling

days unleashing while unfurling pure energy and delight.
light of gold perching on the horizon, breath-taking like
a sailor suffocating seeing and sensing beautiful colors.
blue hues surrounded and wrapped by billowy
wooly white ice crystals. air crisp and cool,
fall like a peacock displaying and spreading colors
in the fullness of warmth and beauty. branches
bending and swaying in the gripping breeze,
stripping leaves randomly from the donor trees.
animals preparing for a wintery course in the upcoming days.
girl and boy button up for fall weather while jumping
in a leaf pile newly created frolicking and dancing
with stars in their eyes.


the sky breaks free
and blue bubbles forth
creating a beautiful motif
of white and blue. the fiery
orb shines and radiates
warmth and energy for
the entire earth. the
magnificent event parallels
the moment felt by the on-looker.
keeping ones heart and spirit
in welcoming and telling reverence,
while breathing and basking
in the light. each moment,
a life time of wishing and wonder.
the sky opens forth and in a moment
transcends everything. Counting and
collecting oneness with nature,
only to realize the strong
connection between light and life.
