Autumn Color Finale

My Favorite Fall Color Photo This Year
The days have a chill
That signals the end
Of Fall Color Foliage
My latest best friend

Thanksgiving's soon
So much to be thankful for
Rekindling love
Reunions Galore

Soon I will spy
Winter scenes
Subtle beauty
With my photographic eye

Autumn Falls

As Autumn Falls
So do Autumn leaves
We saw its peak
This past week

I could go on forever
But you already know
The magic involved
In Fall Color Glow

Stop me if
(You've heard this one before)
But Autumn rules!
Hey! Are you starting to Snore?

Past Peak

Just like Maine
The nearby woods
Burst into color
Delivered the Goods

As soon as it arrived
It was going away
The leaves start to drop
Such a short stay

Alas our Fall Leaf Peeping
Holiday will come to an end
T'was the best I can remember
Time so well spent

Our beautiful memories
Recorded forever
To always remember
Fall Color Treasures

Autumn’s Rich Pageant

Two trees
Go into a fern bar
One an Aspen,
The other a Pine

The bartender says,
"Can I see some ID?"
They show ID
Then order wine

There is no
To this joke
No moral
To this story
Just enjoying Autumn's Pageantry
In Digital Technicolor Glory

Autumn Aspenglow

Late this afternoon
Just before sunset
Just weeks before Daylight Savings Time
A glowing grove of aspens said "Hey, yeah you!"

To complicate the matter
A cold gentle rain slunk over the ridge
I grabbed my camera to seize the day
Phew! I couldn't move any faster

The rain closed in
I took my chance
The sky grew dark
Click for The Win!

Autumn’s Spark

Autumn's here
And won't last long
It's why I write
These simple songs

Best fall colors
In 40 years
West Coast has
That East Coast cheer

I moved out West
So long ago
Left Fall Colors,
Winter Snow

But once a year
I feel this urge
To see Fall colors
That pop and surge

My inspiration
Off the charts
I'm in heaven
With Autumn's Spark

Write verse and song
With Camera on
The leaves will fall
It won't be long

But heavens knows
In months to come
I'll remember
This Autumn Fun

It’s Never Too Late

Governments are fiddle-y
While Earth burns

A show of force
Let's use our Power
Change our course

It's been forever
Since all good people
Came together

It starts at home
What we can do
We're not alone

Ride a bike
Avoid the car
Walk and hike

Avoid packaging
Make dolphins smile

Use your hands
Up-cycle, reuse
You'll be glad

If everyone
Did one small part
What a great start

One Fall Leaf

One fall leaf
Can bring me to my knees

One fall leaf
Gives so much relief

One fall leaf
Erases my grief

One fall leaf
Is beyond belief

One fall leaf
Steals my heart like a thief

Quaking Aspens in Autumn

Quaking Aspens Speak
Yellow, Orange, Copper, Red
"Prepare for Winter"
Is what they said

Quaking Aspens Sail
Leaves like flying kites
They waved, winked and smiled
As they flew by

Quaking Aspens Are
Something to behold
Let's Rejoice!
As autumns beauty unfolds

The Road to Somewhere

The road to somewhere
Has no start or end
Wherever you go
There you are, my friend

The road to somewhere
Brings life's joy
If you let it!
Don't be coy

The road to somewhere
Gives us hope
That round the next Bend
A new Shady Cove
