I was proven wrong
Still hanging in there
Colors prolonged

The colors fall
Like water over a cliff
In time for Thanksgiving
What a gift

I'm on the prowl
Eyes open wide
For scenes to capture
On my bike ride

New Testament

My fifth song with Cello. Its a challenge, but the more I play Cello, the more I love it.

This a New Testament
Religious, in a pagan way
Worshipping Nature
What God hath made

No need for text
Prose or sermons
Just open your eyes
Your soul is yearning

Gentle thoughts
Relaxing and kind
Opens your soul
Opens your mind

Thankful Moon

This November
Subtle beauty
Arrived so soon
With Beaver Moon

On the heels
Of Great October
Trees fading glory
Unfolding story

On to December
With chilled night air
Not so fast!
We have to give thanks

The Beaver Moon
The Thankful Moon
Thankful for
What we adore

What we adore
And give our thanks
Our quiet thoughts
That can't be bought

On My Way Home

On my way home
Off went the call
Five alarm beauty
Fire color wall

These vibrant colors
More sparse and bare
Look at these hold outs
Pockets still there

It's as if
Something doth say
Keep taking pictures
Don't put your camera away!

Thanksgiving Eyes

Late Fall colors Beckon
Just when I gave up
They call me back
I reckon

This tree
Just down the street
On my way to town
I had to stop and greet

On the way home
Trees of many colors
Caught me by surprise
A feast for Thanksgiving Eyes

The Minds Eye

The Eye has a better lens than a camera
It's fantastic
What we humans see
When our eyes are open

The Internal
Affects the External
When our eyes are open
Autumnal or Vernal

The External
Influences our brain
Bringing pleasure
Or pain

Autumn's paradox
Such color in death
Vernal is green
A baby's first breath

Images beget moods
Color the minds eye
Accentuate the positive
Or scare us deep inside

Take the moon
You'll either sing
Clair de Lune
Or songs filled with doom

You get to choose
Decide what you see
Darkness and sadness or
Light and Beauty

Mysterious Thanksgiving Moon

Thanksgiving Moon
Appeared in my Dream
Softly shining
Mysterious scene

My camera didn't catch
The full glory of the night
So I push processed it
Until I got it right

It occurred to me
That humans can see
Human emotions
Better than technology

Flaming Aspens

Rendered Version of This Autumns Aspens
Flaming Aspens
All aglow
Red, Copper, Orange
And Yellow

Autumns Fireworks
In one small tree
Soothed my soul
Set me free

Trees of green
Hide and seek
But when Fall arrives
We leaf peep

The Ghost of Autumn Past

Last year in our own backyard
Why not look back
And reminisce?
Our time together
I'll cherish forever

You and I talk every day
And all the time
You are my intended
Life with you is splendid

Together we see the world
As with beauty and humor
Every day is new
Life is exciting with you

Winters Chill is Here

Buckeye “Ornaments” With The Last of The Fall Colored Leaves
Winters Chill is here
Closing out the year
Holidays good cheer
With those we hold dear

Leaves are almost gone
Some still hanging on
Winter light at dawn
Frost and pumpkin its on

Shadows growing long
Sing a thankful song
Fireplace poker prong
Turns red hot fireplace logs
