Dominant: Autumn’s Grand Stand

fall color april 22

The colorful leaves dominated the landscape

with awe inspiring beauty

taking my breath away

while serving multiple duties


There is nourishment of leaves

for the land

deteriorating and blending

crumbling in my hand


There is provision

materials for a nest

creating a warm place

for the wildlife’s rest


A reminder winter is coming

wildlife hunting for food

bountiful nuts and berries

makes for a festive mood


The creek slows

there are crystals of ice

coolness in the morning

clean water tastes nice


Meditation over

enjoying the sounds of the land

taking in the wonder

of autumns last grand stand
