The sky is dappled with gold

glistening spots carried in the breeze,

waltzing with the wind,

raining down upon me,

autumn leaves.

The ancient alchemists

would stand in awe

of forests transformed

into gold.

It’s quivering

twisting

trembling in anticipation

waiting in a

golden gown

to tumble

and dance

with the wind.

A  huge silver orb is

suspended in the mist

and glistens on the lake.

 

it was all hazy, and the sun was a huge silver orb hanging in mist. I should start carrying my camera again.

A golden leaf

spins toward blackness,

buffeted by traffic,

drifting your way

then my way

above

the high way.

The dogs collapse

in hot heaps.

Summer’s simmering

settles into evening

breeze, but

the sun drops

ever earlier,

and autumn calls.

A leaf on the drive way

A large golden heart

No trees nearby match its shape

It is a

a love letter

from the wind.
