Autumn's Song

The following poem was written for Magpie Tales, a weekly photoprompt.


Creation on fire;
a symphony of color
playing a tune
that for a moment
drowns out humanity,
making us stop
in our tiny mammalian tracks.
Suddenly--
Hearts on fire
we must bow to a Higher Power
that allows us to sing along,
becoming
part of the chorus
of the eternal

Where've you been, girl?

There is something about fall that makes one wonder what's behind it all.
