Watching the Ripples Radiate.

Chapter 50
Red Leaves

Red Leaves moving by the river

Red leaves blowing in the breeze

Billowing in dusty circles

Settling down just how they please. 

Red leaves falling from the maple

Falling down like scarlet rain

Painting Autumn tones for lovers

Making way for winter’s pain. 

Feel the crispness of the evening

Watch the hoare frost gather there

Crunching through night’s frozen pasture

Billowed breath in morning’s air. 

Running down the road in gum boots

Kicking up the piles of leaves

Making waterfalls of redness

Tensions flee and worries ease. 

How I love the feel of Autumn

Stillness in the afternoon

Watching long clouds rich in grandeur

Golden sunset, crescent moon. 

Winter comes with gales and thunder

Lightning flashes in the trees

Red leaves flailing in the windstorm

Graceful Autumn bows ....and flees.
