One Autumn Night
I doubt if there were a light I would see my breath in great puffy clouds before me,
and yet the night surrounding me whispers of winter soon approaching.
Tonight I can hear nature yawn and stretch its weary self reading for a long and deep sleep.
From over head comes the lonely distant call of geese taking there long flight to the warmth they see
across the horizon, calling to each other I can imagine them in great flocks splitting the sky in two great black lines almost as if in a dance.
My heart soars with them feeling there exhilaration and excitement, I draw in a breath at there marvelous cries almost wishing I could take wing and fly. But no I'm happy here where I stand watching this world as it turns a golden hue. I will enjoy the beauty whilst I can, before winter comes and nature changes again.
