We wind through shadows

shimmering within touching distance of cloud,

and you appear,

golden valley

illuminated like a glimpse of heaven,

glistening beauty in the morning glow.

Shadows driven away,

by hope for this new day.

Geese trying a new vocabulary

fly in W formation

I wonder

what will winter wind

waft or wallop  webbed wonders

wandering west and south along waterways?

The rain has stopped

Thunder in October?

The world has changed.

The wind blows off the dead,

flings pieces of forest in a mad dance

to burial & rebirth.

This melancholy restlessness

is your annual autumnal journeying urges,

your need for novelty and new scenery,

but your soul’s longing will not be resolved

at the auto auction.

Really.

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.
