Walking through the woods
observing the foliage this year
there was a particular tree
that spoke without fear
Standing among the big trees
small and in the middle of life
having shed its leaves
preparing for winter’s strife
There is beauty abound
the tree said to me
look amongst the different colors
different wildlife to see
Soon we will sleep
snow will swirl across the land
an awesome beauty
providing water with each band
A time of contemplation
reflecting upon the love given
nestled snug together
comfortable in our living
Spring will come
wakened to a new year
grateful for a chance to begin again
another opportunity for cheer
