Particular: View of a Fall Transition

fall color april 22

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

  1. Very nice, Debbie. I’m so glad to discover your blog and appreciate your visit at mine today. We live near Pensacola in a Longleaf pine forest and love walking the woods, too. (Especially this time of year!)

  2. I love the story you created and while it is an observation, I think it’s also a metaphor for accepting change and looking ahead. Always a pleasure.
